One Big Week: Support our students

Thank you for your support during One Big Week!

Thank you for your generosity during One Big Week. Together, our universities raised over $600,000 from more than 5,800 gifts to support our students. You are providing students across our campuses with academic scholarships, health and wellness services, food and housing, and creating pathways to a college education for the next generation of leaders. 

See your impact.


1Goal. Endless possibilities for our students.

Individually we are great. Together we are even bigger and better.

For more than 125 years, the institutions that make up the Big Ten have been leaders in shaping the collegiate experience. A defining pillar of this leadership has always been supporting our students.

From September 12 – 18, the One Big Week Campaign will unite our Big Ten institutions to collectively champion our students. During this time, your gift to our campaign will support scholarships — and students’ futures.

Scholarships are a lifeline. Financial assistance is crucial to students’ success, empowering them to focus on their studies, pursue internships and volunteer in our communities to become leaders of today and tomorrow.

You can create change for generations of Buckeyes, and for all of us, as they go out into the world and make it better.   

Did you miss One Big Week? You can still make a gift to support our students!

The impact of a scholarship – in their words.

"I want to share my great appreciation for your support! It's wonderful knowing that we have donors like you who are invested in what students are passionate about – in my case, increasing access to life-saving medications – and want to help us get through school." Kendra Thomas '17, '21 PharmD

"Receiving the scholarship gave me the chance to reappraise my dreams for the future. The additional years of study allowed me to do work that was purposeful. The scholarship also motivated me to stay focused and finish. It’s a lot easier to pursue your dream when you have someone cheering you on." Demondre Peak, MSW ’21, College of Social Work 

 "You never really know what else that student you are supporting is going through, and you can be the reason they are able to graduate and make a huge contribution to society." Emmanuel Adu ’21, College of Engineering

"Because of giving individuals like you, who contribute to scholarship support and student emergency assistance, I’m going to make an impact as a teacher in the Mansfield area." Joshua Davis ’21, Ohio State Mansfield
