Scholarship Endowments

Marking outstanding company achievement, honoring a beloved leader or industry innovator, remembering a cherished loved one.

grants

These are all valid reasons to establish an Endowed Scholarship in HRGM. It is truly the gift that keeps on giving - Your donation to an endowed scholarship fund will set in motion an annual award, dedicated to the person or sentiment of your selection, that will give the gift of a higher education, a better life, a brighter future for Oklahoma's next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders.

Your donation will be invested and managed by SWOSU Foundation to generate an annual scholarship award for a deserving HRGM future or current student. As the endower, you may establish the parameters of how the scholarship is awarded, such as to a particular group, interest or field of study. You will also select the name of the Award, perhaps to honor an individual, a cause or a company. You will be invited each year to the Annual HRGM Awards Banquet to present the scholarship(s) to the honoree.

Visit it with us today to discuss the potential of establishing an HRGM Endowed Scholarship. We can work with you and the SWOSU Foundation to review the guidelines and monetary requirements for establishing an endowed scholarship. [SWOSU Foundation]
