Ashland Choose Ohio First Scholars volunteer at science entrepreneurship event

For the past five years students in Ashland University's Choose Ohio First Scholarship program have volunteered to register high school students, teachers and guest speakers at an annual science commercialization and entrepreneurship event held at Hudson High School.  A couple of weekends ago 10 of our current COF students and program director Mason Posner were on hand to help out and hear speakers from BioEnterprise, NASA, the Cleveland Clinic, WIL Research Laboratories and other companies making an impact in STEM across our region.  One of the goals of our COF program is to let our students know about the opportunities in the biosciences right here in Ohio

Our COF program provides scholarships to Ohio residents majoring in Biochemistry, Biology,
Environmental Science and Toxicology at Ashland University.  We have supported 24 students so far and plan to provide additional scholarships for our incoming Fall 2014 class.  Graduates from our program have been past valedictorians and salutatorians at the University, and are earning their PhDs, working in the biotech industry or preparing to attend medical and physician assistant programs.
