ABOUT OSCA AND THE SCHOLARSHIP
The Oberlin Student Cooperative Association (OSCA) is a student-owned and student-operated non-profit corporation that has provided at-cost housing and dining services to hundreds of students at Oberlin College since 1950. We are entirely separate from the College, but all OSCA member-owners are Oberlin College students. Each individual OSCA co-op is responsible for its own day-to-day operations, and together all 9 co-ops make up the umbrella organization of OSCA. The cooperative structure is about empowering individuals and communities with a voice and decision-making power in all aspects of their life and involvement with the organization. Our members are user-owners; they patronize the business but also own its earnings and assets equally. OSCA is truly a member-run organization – everything from rent negotiations with the College, to staff support, to food buying is undertaken by our student members. This scholarship follows our mission of reaching out and strengthening the community around us. As such, through giving this scholarship, we hope to increase access to education within the community – an effort that will give back at more than just an individual level.
