OKLAHOMA CITY, June 15 – For the eighth year, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame will award one Oklahoma high school senior the $6,000 Oklahoma Hall of Fame Scholarship. The scholarship, which is dispersed to the winning student over four years, is based on the student’s leadership roles, civic and community involvement, academic achievement and knowledge and pride of our great state. Students must commit to attending an Oklahoma college or university to be considered; and students must be nominated for this scholarship by a teacher, administrator or any other adult not related to the student.
The scholarship fund was created by the personal donations of Oklahoma Hall of Fame Members and others who wanted to encourage and inspire the next generation of Oklahoma leaders. A committee of Oklahoma Hall of Fame Members participate in the selection of the scholarship recipient.
The $6,000 Oklahoma Hall of Fame Scholarship is just one of the scholarships included in the statewide scholarship opportunities offered annually by the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. Each April, the Oklahoma Scholarship Competition provides an opportunity for Oklahoma high school students to earn cash scholarships and tuition grants for college. With at least 8 scholarships in each county available, students compete based on their knowledge of Oklahoma history, our people, and geography.
Scholarship applications are due Friday, September 7th after downloading and completing the nomination form at https://oklahomahof.com/scholarships.
