Ask an OU student what scholarship they have received, and the chances are good their answer will be: The Sooner Heritage Scholarship. Each year, OU awards more than 2,700 of these scholarships, which typically range in amount from $700 to $1,200.
The Sooner Heritage Scholarship program was established in 2003, especially to help middle-income students whose families do not qualify for federal assistance but still need a helping hand with college expenses. Sooner Heritage also helps qualified families with more than one child attending college.
Awards are made based on a student’s financial need as determined by the FAFSA. Any admitted OU or OU Health Sciences Center student is eligible to receive Sooner Heritage Scholarships.
