The Academic Scholars Program, established by the state Legislature and governor in 1988 and operated by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, provides scholarships to academically outstanding students who attend an Oklahoma college or university. Academic Scholars receive a scholarship to help cover the cost of room, board, tuition, books and incidental fees for up to eight semesters. The actual value of the scholarship varies based on the institution the scholar chooses to attend.
To qualify for the Academic Scholars Program, the applicant must meet the criteria outlined below. Oklahoma students can automatically qualify for the program by achieving designation as a National Merit Scholar, National Merit Finalist or United States Presidential Scholar or by scoring at or above the 99.5 percentile on the ACT or SAT
*For fall 2015, the ACT required score is a total sum score of the ACT skill areas of 134.
*For fall 2015, The SAT required score is a total sum score of the critical reading and math skill areas of 1570.
Application: Oklahoma Academic Scholars Program
**This program should not be confused with the Oklahoma State Department of Education's Oklahoma Academic Scholars. Before the creation of the Academic Scholars Program, the State Department of Education had an award called "Oklahoma Academic Scholar." The student has to meet certain criteria to receive this recognition. It should be noted that this is a recognition only, not a scholarship.
