Nationally recognized as one of the country’s best college access programs, Oklahoma’s Promise is a transformational model that combines emphases on academic preparation and financial support for college. The scholarship program pays tuition at any Oklahoma public college or university until the student receives a bachelor’s degree or for five years, whichever comes first. More than 18,000 students are projected to receive the scholarship next year. For more information about Oklahoma’s Promise, visit www.okpromise.org.
