Student receives OFIC Ohio Scholars Program scholarship

Jessica Stroup '07 has been awarded a scholarship from the Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges (OFIC) Ohio Scholars Program.
The support, sponsored by the accounting firm of Deloitte and Touche, provides a stipend for students studying accounting.

Stroup is a public accounting and business major with a minor in French. Following her graduation next year, she plans to sit for the certified public accounting examination and pursue a career with a major accounting firm.

The Ohio Scholars Program is funded by 110 corporations and foundations whose contributions provide scholarships to highly qualified students.

The Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges, of which Muskingum College is a member, was founded in 1950 and today has 35 member institutions enrolling more than 94,000 students. OFIC raises both unrestricted and restricted gifts including scholarships and endowments. Unrestricted gifts are largely used for student financial aid.
