Help historically underrepresented students handle life’s emergencies
College life is full of unexpected — and frequently costly — bumps in the road. Sometimes, it’s a bus ticket home to visit a sick relative. Other times, it’s an expensive textbook or a lab fee for a class. Historically underrepresented students are frequently under financial stress, and emergencies due to financial hardship can derail a student’s success and, ultimately, the path to graduation.
Your gift not only will help historically underrepresented students, it will demonstrate that Buckeyes will aid each other during life’s emergencies. With your generosity, our students will be able to survive unexpected financial challenges.
Only about one in five Ohio State students comes from a historically underrepresented group. Further, our African American student population has shrunk so that Ohio State lags behind most other four-year universities in Ohio in minority enrollment.
Please give to the Student Emergency Discretion fund and make a meaningful impact in the lives of underrepresented students.
