Although this campaign has ended, you can still make a gift to The Russ College Student Support Fund by using the Give to Ohio University donation page. Thank you, and Go Bobcats!
Your gift to the Russ College of Engineering and Technology Student Support Fund will help to DOUBLE the number of students we’re able to send to the Annual National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) convention taking place March 22-26 in Kansas City, MO.
When you give to this campaign, you’re helping to offset the cost of travel, room and board, meals, and convention fees. Your gift will remove financial barriers, providing access to this transformational event where our students will benefit from professional development, career development, gain critical networking skills, and much more.
Last year, we sent 5 students to this life-changing convention. This year it is our goal to send 10 students to Kansas City.
