Students say thank you to the donors who support them


Students express their pride and gratitude in this video that recognizes a few of OHIO’s many donors and thanks them for the support they provide to Ohio University.

Every year scholarships enable students to attend Ohio University. Given the downward trend of national and state funding for education, Ohio University depends on private support to keep higher education within reach for many of its students. This video provides just a small glimpse into what that support means for OHIO students.

“Thank you,” said Urban Scholar Donald Lindsay, “for the way you’ve been able to not only influence me, but influence my family and other people who are a part of this scholarship.”

Lindsay’s story demonstrates what is possible when deserving students have access and opportunity. An Urban or Appalachian scholarship can be the deciding factor for capable students to select Ohio University. Many admitted students would not have access to a college education otherwise.

These programs, along with many others, create what Farfel Scholar in Classics Rachel Thomas describes as a “legacy of people who have received [support].” Share in their heartfelt ‘thank you’ to the alumni, friends and donors who make this legacy possible.

Student scholarships do more than just bring the best and brightest to Ohio University - they help keep them here. Ohio University has more than 950 scholarship opportunities, and donations - both annual gifts and endowment gifts - help make these scholarships possible. If the OHIO community accepts the notion that potential exists in every young person, then it also must accept the challenge to provide those people with the opportunity to discover and develop their potential.
