$10,000 John W. & Mary D. Nichols Scholarship | Grade 12

The 2017 deadline has passed. Please check back in 2018 for the updated application.

Given annually since 1995, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame offers the $10,000 John W. and Mary D. Nichols scholarship to high school seniors. Students must be nominated for this scholarship by teachers or administrators not related to the student. The scholarship is based on the student’s demonstrated knowledge and appreciation of Oklahoma history, as well as academic achievement, citizenship and leadership. As the name implies, the scholarship continues to be made possible through the generosity of Mary Nichols in honor of her late husband. The Nichols family chooses the recipient from a pool of finalists.
