opportunity for sons and daughters of Ohio trainers.
The scholarship will include full tuition, room and board at Ohio University and
is renewable for 4 years. Eligibility requirements include being the son of
daughter of a trainer who has been licensed for at least five years and is

2018 was the first year the Ohio HBPA Ohio University scholarship was
awarded. Ben Bird son of trainer Danny Bird was the scholarship winner in 2018.
