The James Copham Memorial Scholarships are awarded each year to outstanding graduating high school students who are a son, daughter, or grandchild of an active or retired member of the Ohio Chapter and will be entering their first year at a college, university, technical or vocational school.
Each year, the scholarship committee determines the total amount of the scholarships to be awarded (in 2017 there will be 2 - $1000.00 scholarships). In the spring of each year, applications are submitted to the committee. The scholarships are awarded at the annual State Convention. OHIO is proud to play a part in furthering the education of these young students.
