January 28, 2016 - SEVEN Oklahoma High Schools Named Scholarship Champs
Seven Oklahoma high schools were named “Oklahoma’s Promise 2015 State Champions” by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education for leading the state in the number of graduates who met the requirements to receive a scholarship through Oklahoma’s Promise, a state program that allows students from families whose annual income is $50,000 or less to earn a scholarship for college tuition.
“Recognized by many as America’s best college access program, Oklahoma’s Promise continues to help thousands of students achieve the dream of a college education by encouraging them to aspire to attend college and prepare themselves for academic success, and by providing them with financial assistance,” said Chancellor Glen D. Johnson. “Our Oklahoma high schools have done an exceptional job encouraging and supporting their students’ participation in Oklahoma’s Promise. The State Regents commend them for their hard work and dedication to students and to Oklahoma’s future.”
High schools named Oklahoma’s Promise 2015 State Champions are:
Oklahoma’s Promise was created in 1992 by the Legislature to help more Oklahoma families send their children to college. The scholarship pays tuition at any Oklahoma public college or university until the student receives a bachelor’s degree or for five years, whichever comes first. It will also cover a portion of tuition at an accredited Oklahoma private institution. The scholarship does not cover the cost of fees, books, or room and board.
To be eligible for Oklahoma’s Promise, students must apply during the eighth, ninth or 10th grade, and their family’s annual income must not exceed $50,000 when they apply. A student’s family income also must not exceed $100,000 at the time the student goes to college.
To receive the scholarship at graduation, students must achieve a minimum 2.50 GPA in 17 core courses that prepare them for college and an overall GPA of 2.50 or better for all courses in grades nine through 12. Oklahoma’s Promise graduates also must attend class regularly and refrain from drug and alcohol abuse and delinquent acts.
Students completing the Oklahoma’s Promise program continue to be successful academically, with high school GPAs (3.41 average GPA) that exceed the state average, ACT scores that exceed those of their comparable middle- and lower-income peers, and higher-than-average freshman college GPAs. The college-going rate of Oklahoma’s Promise students exceeds the state average for high school graduates. They also have above-average full-time college enrollment, persistence rates and degree-completion rates. In addition, Oklahoma’s Promise college graduates get jobs and stay in Oklahoma after college at a higher rate than non-Oklahoma’s Promise graduates.
In order to receive the scholarship in college, students must be U.S. citizens or lawfully present in the United States by the time they begin college.
