West Michigan Alumni Club
Help the best students from “That State Up North” attend Ohio State!

Many extremely qualified students from West Michigan would like to attend Ohio State, but are faced with out-of-state tuition that inflates their cost of attending. We want to help send the best students south to become Buckeyes!


The Ohio State Alumni Club of West Michigan has a scholarship committee and endowment fund that reviews applicants and awards scholarship support. The quality and interest of the student applicants is exceptional, but we lose many of the applicants when the available funds are not enough to defray out-of-state tuition costs. With your gift to our scholarship endowment, you can help these students become lifelong Buckeyes.


Your support will assist these students in perpetuity through our endowed scholarship fund. Please know that the Alumni Club of West Michigan takes the selection of scholarship students very seriously and has sent many amazing students to Columbus over the past 20 years. 


Every dollar you donate keeps the dream of becoming a Buckeye bright in “That State Up North”!
