Scholarships

 

The Ambassador Edward J. Perkins Scholarship
The Ambassador Edward J. Perkins Scholarship was created to assist University of Oklahoma students to pursue studies in Africa and other strategic areas. Students from overseas may also be supported to come to the University of Oklahoma for study (see details regarding admissions for international students).  This fund was established in the memory of the late Marjorie Schenfeld Stewart.

The Millie Schafer Sitzman Award
The Millie Schafer Sitzman Award was created to assist University of Oklahoma students to pursue studies in Africa.

The David L. Boren College of International Studies Board of Visitors Scholarship
The Board of Visitors Study Abroad Scholarship was created out of the initiative and generosity of advisors to, and constituents of, the David L. Boren College of International Studies at The University of Oklahoma. The scholarship is unique in that it emphasizes the value of study abroad experiences in destinations that are typically underrepresented.

 

Request for Proposals
The Office of Education Abroad and the African Regional Advisory Committee at the University of Oklahoma seek proposals from OU faculty members to teach a summer course for the Journey to Africa program in the summer of 2014.  This program is designed to introduce OU undergraduates to Africa and world affairs, and consists of two 3-credit IAS courses taught over a period of four weeks.  These courses are subject to approval as upper-division General Education courses.
