Started in 2010, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum award one Oklahoma high school senior the Oklahoma Hall of Fame Scholarship. The $5,000 scholarship, which is dispersed to the winning student over four years, is based on the student’s leadership roles, civic/community involvement, academic achievement and knowledge and pride of our great state. Students must commit to attending an Oklahoma college or university to be considered. Students must be nominated for this scholarship by teachers, administrators or any other adult not related to the student.
Personal donations from Oklahoma Hall of Fame members from across the years made the $5,000 Oklahoma Hall of Fame Scholarship possible. A committee of Oklahoma Hall of Fame members participate in the selection of the scholarship recipient.
