Support your passion

By creating a scholarship, you are giving the gift of opportunity.

Experience the impact a scholarship has on our students first hand. Janet Johnston had the opportunity to meet the latest recipient of her scholarship, and we’re excited to share a portion of that discussion.


Two options are available to fund your scholarship:

  • Endowed gifts create dependable, permanent funding through long-term investments. An endowed fund is invested and continues to grow. Once a minimum level is attained, the interest earned from the principal provides an annual distribution to support your scholarship in perpetuity.
  • Annual gifts can be used in their full amounts to provide student scholarship. A multiyear commitment will insure several years of scholarships.

Support your passion.

Donors are encouraged to customize scholarships based on their passion. John Strasser, DVM '74, choses to support scholarship to provide others with the same opportunities he enjoyed.

Because of thoughtful donors like you, Ohio State's College of Veterinary Medicine has been able to steadily increase our scholarship fund. Each year, we are able to support more students and get closer to our goal of eliminating one year of tuition for all of our students through scholarship. 



Create your scholarship now. 

Our development officers will help guide you identifying criteria for awarding of your scholarship. You’ll also have the chance to engage with scholarship recipients at our Evening of Gratitude, a special experience that brings donors with the students, faculty and staff directly impacted by the donor’s generosity.
