4/13/2021 Update: The OUCKC Scholarships Committee is waiting for OU to provide the list of all area high school seniors that have been accepted to OU and associated information, which OU indicated would be soon. Once we have the information, an email will be sent to all students on the list (and 1 or 2 parents) to request the student to respond to apply. Once the application period closes, the Committee will meet and select 2 winners and 1-2 alternates, then clear the selections through OU before contacting the students.
The OU Club of Greater Kansas City awards two (2) scholarships each year to Greater KC area entering freshmen at the University of Oklahoma! The OU Club of KC is an organization comprised of alumni and friends of the University of Oklahoma (OU) in the Greater KC area, which spans a large area across both Missouri and Kansas.
Each scholarship is in the amount of $5,000.00 ($2500/semester, 3.2 gpa), where most of the money is applicable only to tuition (more details below).
To apply for the scholarship, you need to have already applied and been accepted by OU. In early 2021, OU will provide the Club with a list of all area high school seniors that have been accepted to OU. The Club will then send out email notices to those students with additional information on the Club scholarship process, which includes use of information you already provide to OU — OU Application, Admission Essay, and any submitted Community Service & Leadership essays. Be sure you fill out all of the information, even the optional questions, so the Club can have as much information about you to select our scholarship recipients.
If you have any questions regarding the application process, you may contact Earleen Parks, Club President — firstname.lastname@example.org, 913-634-2043.
* OU Club Scholarships are supported by Club funds ($2500/year = $1250/semester, cash portion) and an OU Match up to $2500/year (= $1250/semester, waiver portion).
* The OU Match is applicable ONLY as a tuition waiver.
* Both the Club Cash Funds and the OU Waiver Match are deposited directly into the student’s Bursar Account (under 2 different entries).
* NOTE: For students receiving other scholarships or tuition waivers, the OU Club Funds Will Cover Outstanding Tuition As Needed First, with the remainder of the OU Club match being available for use on Fees, Housing Charges, Books, etc.
If you are awarded the scholarship, we will notify you by email and by phone.
Good Luck and BOOMER SOONER!!!
