Scholarship and Supplemental Academic Services

Scholarship and Supplemental Academic Services

The Scholarship and Supplemental Academic Services unit (S-SAS) supports ODI's mission of advancing diversity, equity and inclusive excellence by providing quality academic support and financial aid counseling services to ODI scholars and affiliated students. S-SAS develops and implements robust programing and services to support the retention and success of the diverse student populations participating in our various scholarship and service programs. Through our work, S-SAS contributes to the stewardship of endowed and gifted funds that support ODI's mission and values.
