2014 Phoenix Scholarship
Columbus Rotary is pleased to offer a unique scholarship opportunity for non-traditional students through our Phoenix Scholarship program. This program was created to recognize and support students who may not have qualified for a scholarship right out of high school because of grades or other qualifying factors – or for those who started late, or returned to, their college career following a break after high school.
An application is available below in the documents and files section.

NEWSFLASH - from our resident race horse expert!
A week ago there were two Derby Preps contested, the Spiral Stakes held at Turfway Park (some of you may have known this as Latonia Raceway many years ago) the winner was We Miss Artie. The other race was the Sunland Derby won by Chitu. There are only two more weeks of prep races to preview the Derby hopefuls, from here on out the races have a 100 point value for the winner toward their eligibility to the Kentucky Derby. The previous oraces have only had 50 points for the winner so these next few are the main ones to watch.
There were three races held on the 29th the Florida Derby, UAE Derby (United Arab Emirates), and the Louisiana Derby. One of the early Derby hopefuls has been sidelined with a tendon injury and will not be able to compete this May.
Presently, California Chrome is the 5-1 favorite in the futures pool for the race right now, but that may change over the next few weeks.

Congratulations to Columbus Rotary's Veteran Mentoring Initiative upon helping OSU obtain this special partnership.
Columbus, Ohio – Ohio State University has been selected by the Pat Tillman Foundation as a University Partner in its Tillman Military Scholars program. The program provides educational scholarships for veterans, active-duty service members and their spouses. As part of the Tillman Military Scholars program, Ohio State joins an elite network of institutions providing innovative support services to our nation’s veterans and their families.
University Partners are chosen based on their ability to meet criteria that include a culture of support for veterans across the institution, specific support services for veterans and a significant military/veteran enrollment.
In 2008, the Pat Tillman Foundation established the Tillman Military Scholars program to invest in military veterans and their spouses through educational scholarships - building a diverse community of leaders committed to service to others. Since its inception, 290 Tillman Military Scholars representing 34 states and attending 85 institutions nationwide have been awarded more than $4.6 million in scholarships to pursue degrees in medicine, law, business, government, education or the arts.
Ohio State is one of four universities to be named a Tillman Military Scholar University Partner this year. Others include the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, Indiana University and Georgetown University. The Tillman Military Scholars program will provide financial support to outstanding military and veteran students at our university,” said Ohio State interim president Joseph Alutto. “It is a distinct honor to receive national recognition for our efforts to create a supportive culture for our veteran and current military students. We are grateful to the Tillman Foundation for its generosity, leadership and support of this vital student population.”
