Buckeye Soup Autumn 2017: "Wellness"

Our next Buckeye Soup is quickly approaching! Keep updated with our website to ensure you have the best information. This year's theme is "Wellness" - In all aspects! All student organizations looking to fund projects related to wellness (in all its forms) are encouraged to submit a proposal. The website for applications will be up and running - SOON! Keep your ears and eyes open so you don't miss our deadlines! 

So - What is Buckeye Soup?

Buckeye Soup is a crowd-funding opportunity for registered student organizations at The Ohio State University. Check out this video to learn more about the program!

Buckeye SoupHow It Works

  • Registered student organizations submit a mini-grant application, detailing their project idea and why they need funding. Five finalists are accepted to present at the next Buckeye Soup.

  • The night of the event, everyone in attendance makes a small donation at the door. In exchange, you receive a soup dinner.

  • The program begins and each organization has five minutes to pitch their program idea. After the presentations, audience members vote for their favorite idea. The student organization that receives the most votes will receive all money collected at the door to fund their project.

I Want to Present at the Next Buckeye Soup!

The next Buckeye Soup event is being scheduled as you read this! Start brainstorming ideas now so you're ready for when the application opens up - We're looking forward to your creativity this year!
