COLUMBUS - 

Representative Al Landis (R-Dover), in conjunction with the Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools is promoting the 2012-2013 Legislative Scholarship Program.


The Legislative Scholarship Program offers over 400 scholarship opportunities with more than $1.6 million to graduating high school seniors in Ohio. The primary objective of these scholarships is to provide students with the education and training necessary to obtain a job in an Ohio business or industry.


Available scholarships may cover full, one-half tuition, or specific amounts that would assist the recipient in obtaining a certificate, diploma, associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree. The costs of the scholarships are borne by the 52 participating member schools and colleges. No state funds are involved.


As part of the application process, each applicant must obtain the signature of a member of the Ohio House of Representatives or the Ohio Senate on the legislative nomination form. Representative Landis would like to assist any student in the district who are interested in applying for the Legislative Scholarship Program.


“An integral part of securing the health of Ohio’s economy in the future is to ensure that our upcoming workforce is well prepared to meet the challenges of an increasingly competitive job market,” Representative Landis said. “This legislative scholarship program is a great opportunity for graduating seniors to further their education beyond high school and gain the necessary training to meet the demands of today’s workforce. I am happy to help out in any way that I can.”


Scholarship packets have been distributed to local high schools in the district. Additional forms can be retrieved from the Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools’ website at www.ohiocareercolleges.org. The scholarship application deadline is April 15, 2013.


Regarding inquires about the legislative nomination form, Representative Landis may be reached by calling (614) 466-8035, e-mailing Rep98@ohiohouse.gov, or writing to State Representative Al Landis, 77 South High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215.
