OU Travel Grant Form

Starting in 2018, the Foundation provided grants to 6 students totaling $4,000.00 for its first year of operations. For 2019 we have plans to double the budget, expand into fall and winter conferences and hope to provide double the grants.

In 2019 we gave out 13 grants totaling $3,800.00, and we plan on doubling that total before the end of this year.
