Scholarship opportunities

Oklahoma City University tuition can be covered by a number of scholarship opportunities—both endowed scholarships that the university manages and distributes and outside scholarships that have their own deadlines to which students must apply.

Read our blog for more information on finding and applying to nursing scholarships.


These donated scholarship dollars are used to underwrite (fund) existing university, merit, and need-based scholarships that are a discount of the annual tuition for a student’s specific curriculum. There is not a separate scholarship application process as recipients do not receive additional scholarships.

Outside scholarships

Visit the Oklahoma City University tuition assistance and financial aid website for external scholarship opportunities. Keep in mind that some scholarships are continual while others have set deadlines in February, March, April, May, and June.

Nursing scholarships

The best resource for nursing students looking for scholarships is Nursing Explorer. There you can search for scholarships related to diverse demographics, merit, major, religion/faith, and more. You can even filter your search with keywords, deadlines, award type, and state.
