1 + 1 = 1M

That’s all it takes.
You + OMD can complete the equation. 

You know what it takes to succeed: the hard work, the dedication, and perhaps most important, the motivation. OMD Scholars have it. They persist through difficult times and dream of a better future. But they need business leaders like you to advocate on their behalf by supporting OMD. 

When you partner with OMD, you play a critical role in empowering low-income community college students to succeed in school, work and life. Your leadership and initiative makes a profound impact on OMD Scholars and your employees. You’ll share in the success of our scholars, encourage the professional and personal growth of your employees, and foster a business culture where community involvement and employee engagement becomes part of your credo. 

Become part of our community of corporate partners. Contact us to explore ways to partner, including sponsoring a team of scholars, engaging your employees in volunteer opportunities, and hiring our scholars.

"Our partnership with One Million Degrees is win-win. We are investing in the future workforce by supporting highly motivated, talented young people. At the same time, we are building Enova's company culture by providing volunteer opportunities for our employees."

- David Fisher, CEO, Enova International, Inc.


Invest in our scholars and we provide the community with an eager, ready, and diverse pool of talent.

By sponsoring a team of OMD Scholars, you are injecting skills, drive and belief into their jet packs.  You are making it possible for us to reach more students with programming that goes beyond financial and academic support to important life skills that are an integral part of long-term, sustainable success.


Give your employees the opportunity to inspire a scholar and to make a lasting impact on the community. By engaging your team in our volunteer opportunities, like becoming an OMD Coach, you’re empowering tomorrow’s leaders, both at OMD and within your own company.  


Diversify your workforce by hiring OMD Scholars – a group of natural and loyal leaders. They’ve already overcome adverse circumstances to successfully complete their degrees; they’re ready to create an impact for businesses like yours.

 “OMD is not a typical scholarship program. OMD Scholars are resilient, motivated, and determined to succeed. OMD is creating the next pipeline for workforce talent.”

—Jessica Chu, Second Vice President of Hedge Fund Investor Relations, Northern Trust Bank, and current OMD Coach
