Named in honor of Margaret Boyd, Ohio University's first female graduate [of the class of 1873], the program is a collaboration between the Division of Student Affairs, the Office for Diversity and Inclusion and University College. The Margaret Boyd Scholars Program is a 2012 grant recipient of the prestigious 1804 Fund.
