OAACE awards scholarships each year to encourage continuing education as well as excellence in High School Equivalency (HSE) achievement.

These scholarships have helped numerous adult education students continue their education with monetary awards up to $1,000 to pay for the cost of their educational expenses. What a great honor it is for students to be recognized by their instructors and receive scholarship monies to help pay for their higher education. 

There are two separate scholarship applications. One scholarship application is for OAACE Members only. Select the “Member Scholarship” application if you are an OAACE member and are pursuing higher education or training.

The “Student Scholarship” application has three different scholarships listed within the application and students can select which one or more than one if applicable that they are interested in applying for.

The deadline for all scholarship applications to be submitted to the OAACE scholarship chair is Tuesday, Oct. 3rd. All receipents of scholarships will be notified by email on Friday, October 5th.
