    RAMP Up Ohio
    is a scholarship program offered by OSCA to its members who are applying for the American School Counselor Association Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) designation.  OSCA is making available five (5) scholarships in the amount of $200 to cover the cost of the RAMP application fee. 

    The scholarships will be available to the first five members who register online for the funding by October 15, 2014.  The event will accept the first ten registrations, but those who register six through ten will be placed on a waiting list in the event one of the first five are unable to follow through.

    To be eligible for the scholarship, the following must apply:
    1. Must be a member of OSCA in good standing
    2. Must submit an application to ASCA by the October 15, 2014 deadline
    3. Must be a first-time RAMP submission or a ReRAMP
    4. Cannot be a RAMP resubmission (those who are trying a second attempt to be approved for RAMP)
    Those who are selected to receive the scholarship will be notified by email of their selection and will be awarded the scholarship after they have completed and submitted their RAMP application and its receipt has been verified by ASCA. The $200 will then be paid back to whomever paid the application fee.
