George Floyd Memorial Scholarship Information and FAQ

The George Floyd Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by Ohio University and The Ohio University Foundation at the request of alumni and in response to the call from the president of North Central University, Scott Hagan, to universities requesting they consider creating a scholarship to support and honor the memory of George Floyd.  

This scholarship is awarded to current students who demonstrate leadership through multi-cultural student organizations and diversity-based initiatives at Ohio University as well as to incoming students who have a history of diversity-based leadership in their high school careers or communities. 

This scholarship is administered by the Division of Diversity and Inclusion in hopes of showing Ohio University’s commitment to inclusion and diversity while supporting our fellow African American students, faculty, alumni, community and our nation as we collectively mourn the loss of Black lives and acknowledge the extensive injustices perpetrated against people of color.
