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 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.
