GoBuck$

Marion County GoBuck$ Program

Elgin, Pleasant, Ridgedale, and River Valley Students...earn scholarship dollars for your academic achievements before college.

The GoBuck$ program was established in the Marion City Schools in 2010 through the George and Dorothy Alber Scholarship endowment. "GoBuck$” is a win-win for education in Marion. The pilot program incentivizes attendance, academic achievement, and promotes higher education Imagine getting your first college scholarship before you even learn to read. That is now reality through a partnership between The Ohio State University at Marion and Marion City Schools. The Ohio State University at Marion and Marion City Schools have partnered to institute a pilot program beginning in the 2010-2011 academic school year and beyond that could mean increased attendance and academic performance in Marion City grades K-12, while providing up to $100,000 in scholarships annually to attend college.

Ohio State Marion has committed to provide tuition vouchers of $25 and $50 per quarter to Marion students meeting attendance and achievement criteria set forth by the school system. Students have the potential of earning up to $3,300 tuition from kindergarten through high school, if they meet all attendance and achievement criteria set forth by the school.

Because cost is often a deterrent for otherwise gifted students to pursue a degree, organizers feel the program will pay dividends well beyond high school graduation. The “GoBuck$” program provides a real dollars and cents incentive for students to achieve in earlier grades, then continue that habit of achievement at The Ohio State University.

Those interested in donating to the Marion City Schools GoBuck$ program may contact Dave Claborn at Ohio State Marion at 740-725-6360 or email claborn.17@osu.edu.
