Individuals and companies are encouraged to name and fund
their own OSA Scholarships.
Sponsors may determine many of the specifics regarding
their scholarship. For instance, Company ABC might want
to name and fund an "academic scholarship" to
be used by the orphan recipient exclusively for assistance
with college tuition. Likewise, Company DEF might want
to name and fund a 'sports scholarship' to be used by the
orphan recipient exclusively for attending a sports camp.
The individual and company sponsors will be very involved
in selecting recipients.
