Otterbein University is partnering with major employers in central Ohio to offer a special educational benefit — The Otterbein Advantage Scholarship. Through this exclusive program, employees of partnering organizations and their dependent children can qualify for a scholarship that provides the excellence of a private university education at public school prices.

“Most employers offer educational benefits for employees, but not to their dependents,” said Otterbein President John Comerford. “The Otterbein Advantage Scholarship allows companies to offer a benefit to both employees and their dependents and gives Otterbein access to a new group of prospective students.”

Partners include Nationwide Children’s, OhioHealth, Franklin County, City of Westerville, Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA), g2o, and Knox Community Hospital. More partnerships are being negotiated.
