OHB Scholarship

Our Commitment

OHB is committed to helping every youth reach their full academic and career potential. Thanks to many generous friends of OHB, we have a robust scholarship program that allows eligible youth to receive financial assistance towards advancing their education or career.

OHB Scholarships assist with college, trade school, certificate programs, room and board, computers, supplies, tools, etc. and allow youth to advance their education or career without accumulating large debt.

In addition to providing financial support, the scholarship program provides an avenue to stay connected with our youth and support them with enrollment, registration, completion of financial aid documents and occasional texts, phone calls and emails throughout their college experience.
