In memory of Brock Olson

In 2002, The Ohio State University Alumni Club of Minnesota established a college scholarship fund that has been affectionately termed “Bucks for Brock”. The fund was created in memory of Brock Olson, the son of long-time club members, Scott and Kris Olson.

The “Bucks for Brock” Scholarship is awarded annually to students from Minnesota who attend Ohio State. Since the scholarship’s inception, our local club efforts have resulted in awarding over $100,000 in scholarship funds in support of 50+ Ohio State students from MN!!!

How can you help?

  • Participate in weekly game watch fundraiser raffles & silent auctions during football season
  • Donate items for fundraising activities throughout the year
  • Help come up with ideas for new fundraising events and activities
  • Donate directly to our club’s Bucks for Brock scholarship through online giving at Ohio State. Funds go to our club scholarships for MN undergrad students attending Ohio State.

Do you know a MN resident that will be attending Ohio State as an undergraduate?

Encourage them to apply for the Bucks for Brock – Brock Olson Memorial Scholarship! Applicants must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and should also complete our scholarship application. Due date is 1/15/18.

*** Contact Club Scholarship Coordinator Isaac Wu for more information. ***
