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 of $5 (or a canned good!) 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 taking place March 29 at 6:30PM in the Cartoon Room! Our applications ae now open and can be found here, so start brainstorming ideas now so your application for Spring Soup is the best of the best - We're looking forward to your creativity this next year!
