- Helping provide essential scholarship support
for students of African ancestry;
The 1835 Fund is a new effort to acknowledge all facets of the African ancestry experience at Oberlin College; money raised will be allocated to different areas under the guidance of a steering committee including College and Conservatory deans and the leadership of the Oberlin Alumni Association of African Ancestry (OAAAA). We seek to build upon Oberlin's pioneering legacy of educational excellence for all students and support an effort that will make a direct difference for the African ancestry community on campus, providing resources for scholarship and cultural enrichment. Join us in supporting Oberlin.
