Women lead the way in philanthropy.
Women for OSU embodies a culture of giving and service that acknowledges the significant impact women have at OSU and inspires others to positively shape the future of the university through philanthropy and engagement.
Our goal is to increase the number of female donors to OSU as well as increase their total giving through the Women for OSU Endowed Scholarship or Partnering to Impact. Each of these key initiatives leverages the power and influence of women in philanthropy.
The Women for OSU Endowed Scholarship is a prestigious award that recognizes academic, philanthropic and volunteer activities among OSU's students. Please consider supporting the Women for OSU Endowed Scholarship Fund to support students who are passionate about making a positive impact in the world around them.
In 2020, Women for OSU launched the Partnering to Impact Program, a donor-funded grant program to support the university in a way that strengthens engagement with Women for OSU Partners. Since the start of the program, OSU faculty and staff submitted numerous proposals to fund unbudgeted projects that align with the program’s main initiatives.
"As I grew up in Stillwater, going to Oklahoma State University was always my dream. The sense of family and benevolence OSU demonstrated always stuck out to me. I’ll be the first one in my immediate family to graduate from OSU and hopefully the first of many. Every great family has a solid foundation. When a family has a strong foundation, they can depend and rely on each other. OSU has provided me and numerous other students with such a foundation. The current faculty and staff along with the alumni continue to reinforce the foundation and culture here at OSU. As a Women for OSU scholarship recipient, I get to see that strong foundation and culture exemplified. Words cannot describe how the culture and opportunities here at OSU have helped me throughout my academic career. With your investment in me, you have enabled me to continue pursuing my dreams of being the first one in my family to graduate from OSU." - Wesley Sims, Women for OSU Scholar, 2021
