The argument for increased funding for scholarships is both straightforward and ambitious: talent and potential aren’t defined by income level, and access to an Oberlin education shouldn’t be either. Few colleges can match Oberlin’s commitment to access.
From our founding, we have been a pioneer in providing educational opportunities to talented and motivated students regardless of their race, religion, sex, or ethnicity. In short, Oberlin is committed to attracting and supporting the very best students from virtually every state and numerous foreign countries. We promote diversity in the student body because the range of ideas and perspectives students bring improves the education of all who learn here. And we promote diversity because it is the right thing to do.
