The Oberlin Community Youth Scholarship Fund was founded in 1998 by Ms. Ruby Jones, a long-time employee of the Oberlin School District, whose wish was to provide some addditional community support for students to further their education beyond the high school level.  We recognize that education can open doors of opportunity for capable and deserving young people.  Good jobs in the 21st century commonly require education beyond high school.  As an entire community, through OCYSF we can give encouragement and support to our young people in striving for education that will enable achievement of their dreams.  With our encouragement, parents and students will learn to set financial and academic goals. It is our hope that the knowledge that we, as a community, believe in them will help our students believe in themselves and achieve academic success.
