Our Commitment

The Educational Foundation was formed in 1955 to receive, administer and distribute funds and property in the furtherance of the educational activities and objectives of the University. The Educational Foundation provides substantial support to the University's academic programs through endowments and annual gifts. Support includes funding faculty chairs and professorships, scholarships, research, and capital construction projects.

The Office of Development helps to support the foundation's mission by advancing the teaching, research, and public service of Old Dominion University while increasing the amount of private financial support available to the University and its Colleges. We encourage you to learn about the many ways you can help the Office of Development fulfill our mission of enhancing Old Dominion University.

When asking what this scholarship means to me the answer is as simple as one word. Success. While the monetary aspect does take a relief on my financial status, it is more than that. Doors opened, chances given, and taken is what gives me the foot in the door. Being a college student, what I love most is the possibility to grow and that growth is endless.
