Columbus - 
State Senator Gayle Manning (R- North Ridgeville) recently announced that applications are now being accepted for the Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools 2010-2011 Legislative Scholarship Program. More than $1 million in aid is being offered to help provide local high school students interested in attending one of Ohio's career colleges with the education and training needed to pursue a career in business, law, medicine, criminal justice, technology and other fields. "A well-educated workforce is critical to the success of our state, and we need to do all we can to reduce the costs to students seeking to further their education," Manning said. "These scholarships will help students to obtain the additional education and training they need to pursue their career goals, and I would encourage all interested students to apply." More than 260 scholarships are available. They may cover one-half tuition or a specific amount ranging from $2,000-$5,000. All high school seniors graduating from an Ohio high school in June of 2011 with a "C" average or better are eligible to apply for the scholarships. The application deadline for the Legislative Scholarship Program is April 1, and each applicant must be nominated by a current member of the Ohio Legislature. Students in the 13th Senate District can send their nomination forms to Senator Gayle Manning at the Ohio Statehouse, 1 Capitol Square, Room 38, Columbus, Ohio 43215.
