OKLAHOMA CITY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Oklahoma City Community Foundation (OCCF) is the hub for almost 180 scholarships awarded within the state of Oklahoma. Last year, OCCF awarded $3.3 million to 800 students from across the state. The scholarship portal opened on October 1st. And the individual scholarship deadlines vary, so plan to start the process soon!
The first step is to complete the General Application which is basically a Student Profile. Once that’s done, you can begin searching the OCCF database for scholarships that meet your profile.
Ready to dive in? Make sure to have these items handy:
🔹 School transcript – in PDF format.
🔹 Résumé or a list of your high school activities.
🔹 References – names and email addresses of the guidance counselors, teachers and/or administrators who will write recommendations for you.
🔹 Email Account – OCCF recommends using a personal account that you will have access to after graduation.
🔹 Student Aid Report from FAFSA – in PDF format. This will be necessary if you apply for need-based scholarships.
🔹 Find the OCCF website HERE.
