The Otis Hardy Scholarships Fund

Since the inception of Bridge the Gap Mission, it has been Kellan's greatest wish to start a scholarship fund to help give students educational and sport opportunities as well as to honor Otis Hardy.


The Otis Hardy Scholarship Fund (OHSF) is designed to benefit motivated students who recognize the power of education to create a better life for themselves and their families. The program helps hardworking students invest in themselves through continued education.The scholarship is available to students in North Carolina who are enrolled in undergraduate degree programs at two- and four-year colleges and universities.


The OHSF also recognizes the need for youth in under-served communities to have the opportunity to build exceptional character, strong leadership, and develop a commitment to serving their communities. Therefore, children ages 10-18 can apply for educational and athletic scholarships to programs of their choosing in Wake County.
