Annual Named Scholarships

Annual Named Scholarships give donors an opportunity to impact an Oakland University student directly, through a scholarship of $1,000 or more.

  • Scholarships can be need-based of merit-based for a chosen school or college.
  • Groups are encouraged to create or contribute towards an Annual Named Scholarship.
  • Make a one-time gift, or split up the amount over up to 12 months. Payroll deduction may be available to current Oakland University employees.
  • The scholarship will be available for awarding once the full amount is received from the donor(s).
  • The scholarship can be renewed as often as the donors wish – a multi-year pledge can be made to support the
    same student.
  • Normal scholarship rules apply, for instance, you may not specify a particular student to receive the scholarship.
