Each student receives a $200.00 scholarship, with one student from each county selected for a $500.00 scholarship. The county winners are also honored at a state-wide luncheon in Columbus held in conjunction with the Spring OESCA Conference.
Scholarships are awarded to students based on demonstrating outstanding academic achievement as indicated by high school grades, test scores, and school activities and awards. Each of the student winners pay tribute to a teacher whom has made a significant impact on the student over the course of their educational journey.
Also being honored as part of the NwOESC Franklin B Walter program are special education personnel who have made a positive contribution in the area of services to students with disabilities in schools across the four county region. These special education staff include intervention specialists and therapists nominated for recognition by the school administration with whom they work.
Franklin B. Walter Scholarships for the four county area are funded through NwOESC employee contributions and donations made to the Bryan foundation.
