Scholarships

Students entering the University are also eligible to apply for any of the general scholarships awarded by the University Scholarship Committee.  General scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement and financial need. 

Scholarship and financial aid forms are available from the Office of Financial Aid Services (Buchanan Hall, Room 216 or http://www.financialaid.ou.edu/). 

 

School of Meteorology (405) 325-6561

The School of Meteorology Scholarship program seeks to attract and retain highly qualified incoming non-resident students who are interested in meteorology as a major.  The program awards partial non-resident tuition waivers that help defray the cost of attending OU.  The annual awards range from $1000.00 to $2000.00 and are in addition to any other financial aid offered by OU.  The awards are made based on ACT/SAT score; High School GPA/Rank with emphasis on science and math classes; AP classes taken and written statements submitted during the application process.  All students who apply to OU and list meteorology as their intended major are automatically considered for the scholarship.  Typically 12-15 new awards are made each year.  The awards are automatically renewed for up to four years as long as the student remains a non-resident, a meteorology major and maintains above 3.0 GPA at OU.

When funds are available, the School of Meteorology has also looked at incoming transfer students.  For these students, the application process is a bit different.  Students will need to supply the department with a transcript from high school as well as the college attended before coming to OU.  Also, if either the ACT or SAT exams were taken, we will need an official copy of those scores.  In particular, we look for students with calculus and physics backgrounds.
