Dean’s Student Success Book Scholarship

At the beginning of the 2018-19 academic year, 44 percent of first-year students at The Ohio State University at Mansfield were eligible for federal Pell Grants. While Pell Grants and the Buckeye Opportunity Grant help students attend college, they don’t often cover everything students need to be successful. For those students and their families, the cost of college can be challenging or even unattainable.  


Financial stability is the foundation that you must have in place before learning can happen. We developed the Dean’s Student Success Book Scholarship as a support net to help students get the materials they need for class.


Your support of the Dean’s Student Success Book Scholarship will provide up to $300 per eligible student. 


Your gift is a direct and highly effective way to help our students stay enrolled and earn their degrees. Because of your generosity, Ohio State Mansfield students will have less financial stress, can perform better academically, and they’ll know that Buckeyes like you care and want them to succeed.


From Megan, an Ohio State Mansfield student, in 2018: “Financially my parents were not able to help with my college, so my scholarship took a burden off my shoulders. One day I will be able to give back.”


When it comes to helping our students succeed, Buckeyes make it a team effort. We all are working to ensure our students receive the support they need to achieve their educational and professional goals.
