The Oklahoma City Community Foundation is excited to announce it is awarding $567,000 in scholarships to 189 central Oklahoma graduating high school seniors, many of whom are the first in their families to attend college. These students were honored during a celebration event held on April 2nd in Oklahoma City.

These $3,000 scholarships are made possible through the Community Foundation Scholars program and New Opportunities Scholars programs at the Community Foundation, and this is the largest amount awarded to these groups of students since the beginning of the program. These scholarships are available to students attending 54 high schools participating in the Community Foundation’s Central Oklahoma High School Counselor Network. Students and their high school counselors attended.

If my donor were here today, I would be honored to tell them that they have had a significant impact on my life.
