Welcome to the The Woltemade Center for Economics, Business and Entrepreneurship, known as The Woltemade Center.

The Woltemade Center provides unique opportunities for students studying in OWU’s Economics Department. Some of the most outstanding include the chance to become Corns Business and Entrepreneurial Scholars, to be part of the Economics Management Fellows Program, to participate in meaningful internships through the Blaine E. Grimes Summer Grants Program, to work directly with faculty on research projects through the Norman Leonard Student Research Grant, to participate in the Burton D. Morgan Student Paper Competition, to be nominated for the Woltemade Prize, and to be selected for the Joann P. Harvey Accounting Award.

In addition to our scholarship and grant opportunities, the Center also:

  • Seeks out and promotes internships for our students
  • Presents an exceptional speaker series
  • Assists a number of student organizations, such as the Marketing Group, and the Investment Club.
