dc.description.abstract This research aims to explore the attitudes and awareness of egg donation among college women at The Ohio State University. Literature is limited on research specifically focusing on attitudes and awareness among undergraduate college women, who are the target population for egg donation clinics. The research design for this study utilized a quantitative, cross-sectional survey design. The selection of the variables was based on the proposed conceptual framework that included biosocial factors that are likely to influence a participant’s attitude and awareness of egg donation. An online survey was utilized to examine the aforementioned objectives. Primary data was collected from 90 undergraduate female students (N=90) at The Ohio State University using a random sample with no replacement. Respondents were members of student organizations. The organizations were selected randomly and all members in the organization were requested to participate. The results display that the majority had favorable attitudes toward egg donation. Findings indicate particular attention to the role that counselors and social workers should play in assisting and supporting women who are being recruited to donate eggs. en_US
