OU CLUB OF KC UPDATE August 2015
Membership: The University of Oklahoma embraces all of our OU supporters -- the OU Club of KC is an organization of alumni and friends. Annual Membership Drive starts August 1 each year, is tax deductible (check to the OU Foundation) and supports area scholarships to OU.
OU CLUB OF KANSAS CITY
Scholarships: The OU Club of KC currently awards 2 scholarships to attend OU to Kansas City area students in the amount of $5000 each/yr ($2500 Club/ $2500 OU match).
Thank you to Club supporter donations in 2014/2015 which supported an increase in our scholarships from $3000 each/yr to $5000 each/yr ($2500 by Club gets max OU match of $2500). We need your support again this year to maintain that level.
Scholarship applications are accepted beginning in January of each year from students who have achieved admission approval for the upcoming Fall/Spring semesters. Contact Earleen Parks for additional information.
Our goal is to provide a common link to alumni and friends of the University of Oklahoma.
We host Watch Parties for all football games and other sports as possible, support OU Prospective Student Services events in our area, and sponsor OU events and speakers from the academic and athletic areas of the University.
Our primary purpose is to provide scholarship assistance to OU students from the greater Kansas City area.
We are always excited for local students who chose our University and greatly appreciate those who can help us provide assistance to the students.
Club membership contributions provide a significant source of income to the scholarship fund, and additional, tax-deductible donations are always appreciated.
Prize drawing earnings, tip jar contributions, silent auctions and donated drawing items all contribute to scholarships.
