Larry F. Ball Memorial Scholarship

The Larry F. Ball Memorial Scholarship was established in 2019 as a tribute to the memory of Larry Ball by his family. He was the beloved father and grandfather of two daughters and two granddaughters. His outgoing spirit and friendly smile allowed him to touch the lives of many people around him. He was proud to call himself an Ohio State Buckeye and believed in the power of education, thus inspiring this scholarship fund.

The Scholarship

This scholarship will be awarded annually to a female student who is a resident of Ohio. Furthermore, the applicant will be committed to completing a Bachelor’s degree at a four year university/college.
