Help Future Leaders Serve the Greater Good
Give a student the freedom to answer the call to serve.

The late Senator John Glenn once said, “To me, there is no greater calling, if I can inspire young people to dedicate themselves to the good of mankind, I’ve accomplished something.”


Students in the John Glenn College of Public Affairs dream of making our world a better place. They’re passionate, engaged and committed to finding solutions to the most difficult societal challenges. While at Ohio State, they learn to think analytically and strategically, consider various perspectives and theories, and gain the confidence needed to become successful, caring leaders. But too often, these students graduate with debt burdens that limit their ability to address the very challenges that drew them to public policy careers.


Give today to scholarships for our public policy students. When you give to the Glenn College, you help shape the next generation of leaders who will tackle the toughest challenges facing our society. Your support empowers our students to focus on their studies, pursue internships and research experiences, consider graduate degrees, and choose careers where they can make the biggest difference. Your generosity means our future public leaders will make choices that meet the needs of the community, not just the needs of their loan collectors.


Enrollment in the Glenn College is at an all-time high with at least 400 undergraduate students and more than 200 graduate students enrolled. Many students self-report high levels of student loan debt upon graduation. Providing financial support to help give our students scholarship support can make a major difference in the lives of our students and alumni.


Show your support and give a student the freedom to answer the call to serve.
