    OSCA Grants provide financial resources for school counselors who desire to implement counseling projects that support student success. Proposals that articulate their goals through data, plan a mindful intervention to address a specific concern and have a clear method of measuring the impact upon children will be considered for the yearly awards.

    Grants are available for up to $1000.

    You must be a professional member of OSCA and log into your member account on the website in order to apply for a grant. Please note that the grant program is no longer open to student members working in internship sites anymore.

    The deadline to submit applications for consideration for the 2014-2015 school year is April 30, 2014.

    Those programs chosen to receive funds will be notified in May of their selection. OSCA requires grant recipients to prepare a short written summary of the project when completed and grant recipients will be encouraged to submit a proposal to present at the 2014 All Ohio Counselors Conference.

    Questions regarding the grant program can be directed to the Grants & Awards Chair at grantsawards@ohioschoolcounselor.org.
