| Endowed Scholarship Funds
The University Women’s Club supports three scholarship funds which are administered by The Ohio State University Office of Scholarship and Student Support. The UWC has been supporting deserving students through our endowed scholarship funds for the past 67 years. UWC scholarships have been awarded to students who reside in Ohio and 14 surrounding states. Since 1989, 600 scholarships have been awarded to deserving OSU students. The graduation rate of students supported by UWC scholarships is 100 percent.
Scholarship Funding Opportunities
To assist in growing these scholarship funds, donations can be made to the UWC at any time. Think about establishing a memorial for any occasion–giving in memory of or in honor of a special person or event. Your gift is tax deductible. We deeply appreciate the generosity of our friends, donors, and members. Your contributions make it possible for the UWC to continue supporting deserving OSU students.
