Welcome to The Official Website of Johnny Bench
The Johnny Bench Scholarship Fund has expanded it's program. Now, the JBF will continue to support student athletes seeking higher education while also offering grants to additional youth charities.
The purpose of the Johnny Bench Fund is to provide scholarships to college and university undergraduates who have displayed both academic and athletic credentials during their high school careers, and who are in need of financial help to begin or continue their education at the college or university level.
For students residing within the I-275 boundary and attending the University of Cincinnati, Miami University, Mt. St. Joseph University, Northern Kentucky University, Thomas More College and Cincinnati State. Also for students residing in Binger OK attending college in Oklahoma. Applicants must have participated in athletics.
The applicant must be a senior in High School or an undergraduate attending an accredited, non-proprietary college or university and a resident of the Greater Cincinnati area
We generate funds to return to the community via charitable contributions. These contributions have been earmarked for abused and at risk children.
Eighteen tournaments have raised over 12 million dollars for local children’s charities. Funds are raised through golf and tennis events with tournament sponsorships, raffles, live and silent auction
