How can you change the life of the next visionary CEO or entrepreneur? Scholarships.
Support of scholarships provides Fisher College of Business students with access to a premier business education, vital experiential learning opportunities and an incredible network of alumni, friends and business leaders.
Alumni and donor support has allowed me to experience many professional and extracurricular experiences that I would not have otherwise been able to pursue. Through both scholarships and programs made possible because of donors, I have been able to develop into the young professional I am today.
Scholarships represent transformational lifelines to critical professional development, and they equip Fisher students with the education, skills and global perspectives to succeed in a rapidly-changing business world. Through scholarships, students exhibiting talent and need can fulfill their potential as leaders, inventors and change agents dedicated to making positive differences in communities near and far.
Consider championing Fisher students by supporting an existing scholarship or establishing a fund that aligns with your personal passions. Your investment can expand education access and affordability while fostering dynamic environments and connections that awaken the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Donor support meant I didn't graduate with massive student loan debt, something that would have impacted my financial future for years. Scholarships give students like me the freedom to focus on my education, not on the stress of worrying about how to pay for college.
As you consider the impact your support can have on the lives of Fisher students, the college provides a number of options for creating your own scholarship fund.
Endowed scholarships* provide Fisher with a self-renewing resource that the college holds in perpetuity. These gifts impact countless students year after year and create a lifelong connection and legacy of philanthropy at Fisher and The Ohio State University.
Current use scholarships* allow Fisher to distribute funds immediately to eligible students. This flexibility equips the college to make prompt decisions to recruit and retain the very best students.
* Creation must meet minimum financial levels as determined by The Ohio State University Board of Trustees.
Donors are the reason I have been able to complete my undergraduate degree, pilot license and study abroad experience. As a dual major and flight student, I would not have had the funds to complete my initial career journey. So, I am eternally grateful for the scholarship donors whom God sent to bless me.
Scarlet & Gray Advantage
The Scarlet & Gray Advantage program offers all undergraduate students at any Ohio State campus a path forward to a debt-free bachelor's degree. The program broadens our students' pathways to financial independence through paid internships, employment, financial literacy education, state grants, university aid and donor-supported scholarships. The result is not a "free tuition" initiative. Instead, the Scarlet & Gray Advantage program engages students as active participants in achieving their degrees through this innovative and joint commitment with the university.
