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.  The student scholarships are for adult students that meet the eligibility requirements for the scholarship.

The student scholarship application can be found here: Student-2021-OAACE-Scholarship

Members of OAACE are also eligible to apply for a scholarship.  If you are a member of OAACE the scholarship for members can be found here; Member scholarship ’21
