David Gall Memorial Scholarship   


              


David Gall began working with transfer students at The Ohio State University in the early 1990’s. At that time, the state of Ohio had just begun to legislate the aspects of transferring college credit. Along with OSU leadership, David Gall was instrumental in developing policies and practices at OSU to support those statewide initiatives. David actively and passionately promoted inter-institutional partnerships across the state that benefited transfer students.


David was an early member of the Ohio Transfer Council and was involved in the merger of the North and South Councils. It has been said that David Gall was “a tireless advocate for transfer students and never met a stranger that he couldn’t charm/bargain/persuade to work on behalf of the students.” The Ohio Transfer Council is pleased to honor his work, his dedication, and his passion with the David Gall Memorial Scholarship. David passed away in 2004 but through this scholarship he continues to help transfer students succeed.


                                         

In honor of David and his work with The Ohio Transfer Council (OTC), each year, OTC awards multiple, non-renewable $1,000 scholarships for students transferring from one member institution to another. Scholarship funds are disbursed at the beginning of each term and are based on a student's grade report and enrollment status of the prior term. The scholarship application as well as eligibility guidelines and criteria are below. 



The 2018 David Gall Memorial Scholarship application is now closed. Look for information about the 2019 scholarship to be posted in January.
