Are you a high school student interested in building a strong foundation for college and your career? Or, are you a parent who wants to give your high schoolers a chance to sample the college experience this summer?

Consider applying for the 2019 Ohio Business Week (OBW), July 21-27th!

OBW is a special program where high school students from across Ohio work together to take business ideas from concept to reality. Students work in small groups with their peers, with each group assigned an adult that helps the students through business advice and expertise. Students have the opportunity to learn from business professionals, developing valuable leadership and entrepreneurship skills – all while having fun, making friends and experiencing a week on-campus at Ohio University.

Wright-Patt Credit Union (WPCU) is excited to partner with OBW, along with other companies in the communities we serve, to provide scholarship opportunities to cover the $500 business class fee. Join OBW and just pay the commitment fee of $449, which covers all expenses for meals, housing, and materials for the entire seven-day, six-night stay at Ohio University.
