BEAVERS CARE

Make a difference in students' lives right now

 

Give Now

 

In these challenging times, we know our students and their loved ones face finanicial uncertainty, especially when it comes to paying for college. The College of Business is proud that our emergency scholarship fund allows us to assist as many students as possible — so they can stay enrolled and stay on track to earn their degrees.

With your help, we can do even more.

 

Student emergency fund

The college is working tirelessly and proactively to identify students who are facing financial burdens due to the effects of COVID-19, whether it’s because they've lost a job or someone who supports them has lost a job. Our goal: to reach out and assist those in need.

Together, we can make a difference in OSU students’ lives right now: Beavers helping Beavers.

When you give to the College of Business Student Emergency Fund today, you provide immediate resources for our students who are facing new and overwhelming challenges.

What students are telling us

This spring the College of Business surveyed students to assess current and future financial need during the COVID-19 crisis. Of the respondents, we found that:

Lost Jobs

423 students reported job loss or a significant reduction in hours for themselves or someone on whom they rely financially. Students lost jobs from 150 organizations on campus and in communities throughout the state.

Lost wages

On average, respondents are losing $1,209 in monthly wages.

Asking for help

More than 130 students expressed interest in learning more about financial literacy at this time, and 190 asked about employment opportunities. All of them may receive assistance from the College of Business to meet those needs.

From an Emergency Scholarship Recipient

This has helped with the weight on my shoulders in numerous ways. I feel as though my words are not enough in this scenario, and I wish these were times that I could meet you in person to give you a proper thanks.
