Olin College's Top Funding priorities:
Support any fund at www.olin.edu/give
The Olin Fund
The Olin Fund supports and expands innovative classes, funding for student tuition, need-based scholarships, student and faculty projects and research, outreach and partnerships, technology and facilities, and faculty recruitment, retention and support. The Olin Fund provides the College with the flexibility to pivot and respond to any needs that may arise. A strong Olin Fund means Olin can face changes and challenges with strength. Read more HERE.
Need-Based Financial Aid Fund
Financial circumstances should not present a barrier to an Olin education. In keeping with the school’s mission, students for whom finances are a concern can be awarded need-based scholarships. These need-based scholarships provide critical funds for qualified, talented students who would be otherwise unable to finance their college education. Read more HERE.
The Student Emergency Fund
Olin parents created the Student Emergency Fund to honor the student affairs staff for helping their children during difficult times. These parents wanted to ensure other students could be supported, should needs arise. This means funding students’ unexpected travel needs or medical emergencies, and even extends to providing technology and resources for students living and studying at home. It remains critically important that this fund continues to be replenished so Olin is always able to respond to student need.
The Richard K. Miller Presidential Scholarship
The Richard K. Miller Presidential Scholarship will provide need-based financial aid to students at Olin, with a preference for students who are the first in their immediate families to attend college. Gifts to this fund support Olin’s commitment to ensuring that finances never stand in the way of the transformational experience of an Olin education. Read more about the scholarship HERE.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Fund
This fund was started by the class of 2020 to promote diversity, equity and inclusion on the Olin College campus through special programming. The class of 2020 intends the fund to support students of disenfranchised backgrounds attending DEI conferences.
