APPLYThe Ohio Association for Healthcare Philanthropy is firmly committed to providing meaningful opportunities to expand your knowledge, enhance your skills and help establish professional relationships that will support you throughout your development career.

We are living and working in challenging times where words like downsizing, right sizing, and reengineering are having a major impact on all our budgets. We invite you to apply for one of the scholarships sponsored by OAHP. This is one of the many advantages of an OAHP membership.

The OAHP Board encourages all members to consider applying for one of our association's scholarships. Winners of the OAHP Scholarship, Paul Ireland Scholarship, W. Bruce Evans Memorial Scholarship, and Eleanor Jones Internship will be announced at the annual meeting at the spring conference. Awardees will be able to use the scholarship from August 1, 2019, through August 30, 2020.

The scholarship committee is led by Tracy Dennis.

If you are interested, please complete the online application by August 1.
