WAIP Crowdfunding

The John Glenn College of Public Affairs offers an exciting opportunity for Ohio State students to live and work here in DC, and we are proud to partner with the Washington Academic Internship Program for social and service events all year long! This month marks the fifth annual WAIP crowdfunding campaign, which raises money to bring students here to DC on a full housing scholarship. Make your gift now (or any time throughout the month of February) to help support these incredible students! Alumni: your contribution counts towards your OSUAA $75 sustaining membership!
 


RENEW OR JOIN OSUDC

Beginning on January 1, 2020, the OSUDC membership year now runs on the calendar year from January 1 – December 31. For $25, you are a member of OSUDC; for $75+, you are a member of OSUDC and a  sustaining member of OSUAA, which makes you eligible for OSUAA benefits such as football tickets. Membership dues are tax deductible contributions to our OSUAA current use fund that makes programming available to area alumni. Dues can be paid at one time, or you can set up recurring payments.

We offer two ways to become a member:

Option 1) Yearly membership to Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. | Join now

If you simply want to join the Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. you can do so for a modest donation of $25 per year. This option is open to both Ohio State alumni and Ohio State fans.

Option 2) Yearly sustaining membership to OSUAA + Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. | Join now

Becoming a sustaining member of The Ohio State University Alumni Association requires a yearly donation of $75 (which makes alumni eligible for football tickets and other great benefits). By allocating a yearly donation of $75 or more to the Alumni Club of Washington, D.C., you will get access to OSUAA benefits and Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. incentives. If you have any questions, please contact our membership chair, Kennedy Kowalski, at membership@osudc.org, or our treasurer, Melissa Harto, at treasurer@osudc.org.
