We know the value of making your dollar stretch, so we want you to know that support for Ole Miss First extends far beyond tuition assistance. It also helps provide Ole Miss First scholars with mentors and leadership development.

Our dedicated staff ensures that our OMF scholars have the guidance needed to navigate the tricky waters of college life. Whether mentors give advice on an academic course, help to set up a chemistry tutor or just listen to students talk about roommate problems, they are proven to positively impact academic success, retention and graduation rates.

Ole Miss First scholars benefit from the advice and experience provided through leadership development opportunities. University and community leaders share their personal experiences with scholars at monthly dinners. Additionally, our OMF sophomores take part in a campuswide symposium to learn about leadership styles and identify their own leadership potential.

We thank you for your support and encourage you to consider another gift to the Ole Miss First program. For more information on making a contribution or establishing an Ole Miss First scholarship, please contact Sarah Hollis at 662-915-1584 or shollis@olemiss.edu.
