Help Them Set the World Alight

Raising funds to align with scholarship needs is our first priority at Kent State, and that focus ensures we support our students from the day they receive their letter of acceptance to the day they receive their diploma. With scholarships, we can assist our students as they pursue their degrees, enhancing their experiences and increasing their chances of success. By pairing philanthropic support with institutional funds, we can better address the array of financial needs that impact our diverse student body.
