The Ohio Appalachian Center for Higher Education (OACHE) has won the "Oscar" of government awards. OACHE, which is a consortium of 10 colleges and universities in the state of Ohio, is one of five winners of the Innovations in American Government Award. The award was announced in May by the Institute for Government Innovation at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Created in 1992 by restaurateur Bob Evans, who was then a member of the Ohio Board of Regents, OACHE helps more than 14,000 rural Ohioans obtain a college education. Access grants to institutions of higher education and Appalachian schools are awarded by the organization for projects that promote college attendance. The grants fund career planning and financial aid, field trips to businesses and colleges, guest speakers and other resources.
