See the impact a scholarship can have

For some Buckeyes, receiving a scholarship means the ability to accept a valuable internship instead of taking on a full-time job. For others, it makes it possible to complete a degree that was once on hold, or gain enriching experiences while studying abroad. These stories inspire us to continue creating pathways to an affordable, accessible education so students can pursue their passions and reach their full potential.



Scholarships were crucial to Maddie’s experiences at Ohio State. By investing in students like Maddie, you can empower them to fully pursue their passions and create vibrant futures.
