Support student scholarships
As loyal Ohio State alumni, we want today’s students to experience everything we loved – and more – during our time at school. So we’re constantly working to make college more affordable for current Buckeyes. It is almost three times more to go to Ohio State out of state than in state. As alumni, one of our missions is to make it easier for Detroit high school students to go to Ohio State.
The main way to help our students is through our scholars fund. The Detroit Alumni Scholars Fund was established May 1, 1998 by the alumni club members and friends. The fund allows us to provide merit scholarships to graduates of Detroit area high schools. We award six scholarships each year and the top award is renewable the all four years of the students schooling.
Your gift might be tax deductible and donations of $25 or more gives you membership into the Motor City Buckeyes Club. Gifts of $75 or more will get you a sustaining member of the alumni association.
With our club located in Detroit, it is hard to recruit the best students to go to Ohio State since we are so close to University of Michigan. Our scholarship fund helps in our recruiting efforts and students who want to go to Ohio State be able to achieve that wish. Over the years we have seen that the recipients of our scholarships have gone on to have successful careers in their chosen field.
Donations made during the Day of Giving will be matched up to $2,500! Please help us today with a gift to our alumni scholarship fund to help potential Michigan Buckeyes come to Ohio State to help with their bright future and Go Buckeyes!!
