The OSUDC Scholarship Challenge is on!
This year, OSUDC is the only alumni club selected to participate in the Scholarship Challenge, a grassroots fundraising effort led by Ohio State’s First Lady, Veronica Meinhard. Our goal is to raise $30,000 for the Spearman Scholarship Fund. We annually award scholarships to Washington, DC area students – DC, Maryland, 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 ambitious 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.
