Detroit Alumni Club
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 3 times more expensive 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 6 scholarships each year and the top award is renewable for all four years of the student's schooling.

 

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 That School Up North! Our scholarship fund helps 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. Please help us today with a gift to our alumni scholarship.

 

Donations made will be matched up to $3,000! Take advantage of this and make a $250 donation, which gives you a lifetime membership in the MotorCity Buckeyes Club! A $25 donation gives you a 1 year membership in our club! 

 

You can support potential Michigan Buckeyes coming to Ohio State and help with their bright futures. Go Bucks!

 

Are you staff or faculty? You can make your gift via payroll deduction.
