Scholarships & Awards
Currently enrolled A&GS students are strongly encouraged to apply for scholarships through the University’s Centralized Academic Scholarship Hub (CASH), accessible through the Financial Aid Website.
In CASH, eligible students can apply for a number of other scholarships specific to the Department of Geography & Environmental Sustainability (DGES) and the School of Meteorology (SoM), as well as:
- The South Central Climate Science Adaptation Center International Studies Scholarship ($5,000)
- The John T. Snow Study Abroad scholarship ($1,500)
In addition, the College provides a limited number of tuition waivers for out-of-state students, including incoming freshmen. Eligible students are selected by DGES and SoM faculty annually.
The College of A&GS offers financial assistance to students traveling to professional conferences.
A&GS students have the option to check out textbooks for major requirements, for up to four days at a time, thereby saving the cost to purchase a textbook.
The College also strongly encourages sophomores to apply for NOAA’s Ernest F. Hollings Scholarship Program, which provides a number of benefits, including up to $9,500 per year in academic assistance. This scholarship is open to all A&GS majors. Here is a link to FAQ.
We encourage all students to meet with an OU MoneyCoach to assist you in your academic financial planning.
