Women of the South Scholarship Fund

Eligibility Requirements of Application:

  • Applicants must be graduating Oklahoma high school seniors from Capitol Hill High School, Crooked Oak High School, Moore High School, Mount St. Mary’s High School, Santa Fe South Charter High School, Southeast High School, Southmoore High School, U.S. Grant High School, Western Heights High School and Westmoore High School.

The Women of the South Scholarship is a one-time award. The recipients of this award will be determined based on financial need, honors and activities. Special consideration will be made for working students. To be eligible, students must be first-time freshmen at an in-state college or university, beginning classes in the fall following their senior year of high school. Students are only eligible to receive the award for their freshman year of college and may not defer the scholarship. Scholarships will continue for the second semester providing the recipient maintains a 2.5 GPA, provides a copy of the first-semester transcript and provides a written statement addressing progress made in college work, her program for the future and the meaning of a college education. Upon receipt of this information, the remainder of the scholarship will be issued.

Funds may be used for tuition, fees, and books at Oklahoma’s academically accredited two-year, four-year or vocational technical nonprofit institution. Payments are made directly to the school.

Women of the South was founded in April 1995. Their non-profit organization aims to provide higher educational opportunities to women in the south metropolitan area. Scholarships will be awarded to high school senior women from south Oklahoma City and Moore.
