Marion Buck$ Cash in for College

When there’s an Ohio State campus in your hometown, the university becomes an even larger part of the community. In the instance of The Ohio State University at Marion – they want to do even more. Six years ago, Dave Claborn, director of development and community relations at Ohio State Marion, came together with his team to develop an idea that would reward good, local students: GoBuck$. GoBuck$ is a scholarship program that provides students attending Marion City Schools tuition vouchers for attendance and academic achievement.

Engagement is:

The collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.

- Carnegie Foundation (2008)
