Campus Scholarship and Innovation Campaign (CSIC)

Campus Scholarship and Innovation Campaign (CSIC): For Our Students

The Campus Scholarship and Innovation Campaign (CSIC) began in 1978 when one of Wright State’s first employees organized the university’s first employee giving effort. Four decades later, we continue to see the impact. 

Your participation makes a powerful investment in our more than 15,000 Wright State students and our educational mission. You inspire, challenge, advise, coach, nourish, connect, enrich, and offer a friendly smile. When you participate in CSIC, you make a powerful statement of our shared commitment to the university, one that sets an amazing example to alumni, friends and the local community.


You can make an impact by designating your donation to any area of campus, such as a department, research fund, or scholarship fund of your choice. As always, 100% of your donation will directly support the fund(s) you choose. Administrative fees are never taken from your gift.

The Wright State University Foundation receives and administers all donations on behalf of Wright State University. The Foundation is a separate and independent nonprofit organization. All financial affairs are managed and supervised by the Foundation's board of trustees.

Faculty and staff support of the university through CSIC displays a belief in Wright State students to pursue their dreams and career aspirations. Without scholarships, many students, like myself, would not be able to attend college due to the financial strain that college has on an individual and their families.

When faculty and staff show support for scholarships and programs, it shows their support for student success. The Wright State community plays a key role in overall success of the university. The scholarships and programs that they fund help not only student success but morale and retention.

The fact that our faculty and staff continue to show loyal support and encouragement to students proves how much they care about the success of each and every one of us here at Wright State. As a scholarship recipient, I can honestly say that their donations have made a huge impact on my time here.
