Help Us Soar

Give Today To Support Aviation Students

Aviation Students Take To The Skies

Our country is in critical need of highly skilled Aviation professionals.

Your gift provides transformational experiences for aviation students at OHIO. With your support, we can increase the depth and breadth of leadership opportunities and professional development experiences we extend to these students.

The focus of the Department of Aviation has always been to give students experiential learning opportunities that will stay with them for a lifetime—building solid foundations of collaboration and creativity to allow our students to have vibrant aviation careers.

Aviation is a crucial part of moving people and goods across the country and around the globe. Your support helps students continue to aim higher in their academic careers and build strong professional relationships. We are proud to be but one stop on an aviation professional's path to take their career to new heights. Please consider making a gift today.

Your generous gifts to this OHIO campaign will help Aviation students soar through their academic careers and beyond.

You've taken to the skies, and now you get to help us soar. Here are a few things our alumni, family, and friends can do to support the student experience.
