The ODU Student Concordia Scholarship
The ODU Student Concordia Scholarship is all about students helping students. "Concordia" which means unity in Latin is what is it is all about. This award will be completely funded by donations from the student body and will be awarded to a Monarch student each semester. These donations are done through the Senior Class Challenge.
The Senior Class Challenge is a fundraising initiative that was created to give seniors of the current graduating class an opportunity to show their unwavering Monarch pride and leave their lasting legacy after graduation.
Every year, Monarch alumni, faculty, staff and friends make annual gifts to support Old Dominion University in areas such as academia, programming, events and athletics. The Senior Class Challenge specifically allows students to show their appreciation and give back to their Alma mater.
By participating in the Senior Class Challenge, our graduating seniors are helping to provide a scholarship to assist students who would not be able to complete their ODU degree due to financial constraints. The gifts will go directly to the ODU Student Concordia Award, an endowed scholarship created by University Advancement.
To give, students will pay $20.XX in honor of their graduation year. As a thank you, each student donor will receive an ODU philanthropy honor cord to wear at commencement as a show of their commitment and support.
