Warning:  There are scams out there so BEWARE.
Never pay for scholarship information.

Students – your chances to receive free money increase substantially if you apply for several scholarships.  Scholarships are awarded based on merit, need, skill, hobbies, family history, athletics, writing ability and much more.

We also encourage Seniors to apply for 2-3 per scholarship per week and Juniors to apply for 1-2 scholarships per week.

Oklahoma’s Promise

Oklahoma’s Promise is a financially based tuition scholarship that pays the cost of tuition for enrollment at a public Oklahoma college or university. It pays a portion of these costs for students that wish to attend a private school, as well as for courses at certain public technology centers.

Enrollment must be done when the student is in 8th, 9th or 10th grade (aged 13-15 for home-schooled students). The deadline each year is typically at the end of June, and applications are available each year in August. Check online for a current application.

Contact the counselor’s office if you have any questions.
