The primary purpose of the Northwestern Oklahoma State University scholarship and award program is to recognize and reward the academic excellence of entering, transferring, and continuing students. The scholarship programs are funded by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, the generosity of the University faculty and staff, the Northwestern Alumni, local business and professional people, civic and service organizations, private citizens, and from the earnings, endowments, and gifts to the Northwestern Foundation, Inc. These awards are offered each year to capable students whose participation, academic achievement, and/or leadership efforts merit recognition. For more information about scholarships, please call the Financial Aid/Scholarship Office in Herod Hall: (580) 327-8540.
The English Department offers several scholarships to qualified students who must submit a completed application to the English Department by February 15. Since all scholarships require annual application, students who have already been granted a scholarship and wish to continue receiving funds must complete an application and submit it to the Scholarship Office no later than March 15. Transfer students must submit a completed application, along with academic transcripts from all colleges attended, by July 15 to be considered for an award. Qualified students can get the application forms from the office of the Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences (Fine Arts Building 211) or the department chair's office in Vinson Hall 210.
