Target: Scholarships

Each fall the Target: Scholarships committee plans an event at the Cardinal Center in Marengo, Ohio to raise funds for the Ohio AgriBusiness Association Education Trust scholarship program. In addition to a day of sporting clays, OABA members have the opportunity to network with their colleagues, while they continue to support aspiring agribusiness professionals.

The Educational Trust annually provides more than $45,000 in scholarship dollars that is provided annually to students enrolled in an agriculture-related field attending The Ohio State University and OSU Agricultural Technical Institute, Clark State Community College, Central State University and Wilmington College.
