Supporting the Next Generation of Philanthropic Women Leaders

Each year, a portion of the Women & Philanthropy fund is allocated for a four-year scholarship, totaling up to $28,000 for an incoming female student. Beyond meeting competitive academic criteria, recipients must demonstrate in writing their financial need, what personally motivates them about philanthropy, and how they want to use their degrees from The Ohio State University to impact their communities. Women & Philanthropy members may choose to give their time to help review applications and the Scholarship Committee determines the final award decision.
