Scholarships & Other Financial Assistance

Ogden Foundation Scholarship

The Ogden Foundation manages the endowment left by Robert W. Ogden (April 1, 1815 - November 10, 1873) namesake of the Ogden College of Science & Engineering. The Foundation leases the former Ogden College campus, merged with Western Kentucky State Teachers College in 1928, to WKU, and provides scholarships and awards to WKU students.

Ogden Foundation Research Scholarship

The Ogden Research Scholarship and Scholars Program is aimed at encouraging undergraduate student research. The intention of this program is to instill the excitement, rewards and challenges of research, and hopefully this enthusiasm for research will carry on past the scholar's undergraduate education.

Ogden College Ambassadors are an elite group of leaders who represent the College and assist with recruitment and retention. Benefits of becoming an ambassador include a scholarship, unique OCSE apparel, networking, and excellent resume building experience.
