Show OU Spirit: Join the Giving Challenge

"31 years at Oakland, I live for this picture. Can't tell you how proud I am of our school and these kids," says Greg Kampe, Men's Basketball Head Coach... that's because OU pride is positively contagious, and runs strong. Help us honor the students fueling this energy through scholarship recognition.

From Feb. 19-27, OU and rival UDM go head-to-head in the Metro Series Giving Challenge to see who has the most supporters of student success. Give to the Golden Grizzly Spirit Award – any amount helps– and be a part of this action.

Donations are applied to...

$1,000 scholarships awarded to both undergraduate and graduate students. Preference is given to students involved with the Grizz Gang, a mainstay at OU basketball games with members stationed in the bleachers – decked out in black and gold.

Why are donations necessary?

As tuition and scholarship expenses continue to rise, the support of our alumni, parents, fans, and friends of Oakland University becomes more critical. No matter the size of your gift, you are making a difference in the lives of our students and their first-class experience as Golden Grizzlies.

Support impacts our student's education by assisting with scholarship costs as they prepare for their careers after Oakland.
