This year, OSUDC is the only alu❌ni club selected to participate in the Scholarship Challenge, a grassroots fundraising effort led by Ohio State’s First Lady, Veronica ❌einhard. Our goal is to raise $30,000 for the Spear❌an Scholarship Fund. We annually award scholarships to Washington, DC area students – DC, ❌aryland, and Northern Virginia – to help offset their first year costs at Ohio State.

We are proud and grateful to participate in this year’s Scholarship Challenge. We cannot reach our a❌bitious goal without you. Every gift counts, and with your support, we will be able to increase the scholarships available for Washington, DC area students to attend Ohio State.
