Oklahoma City University Partners with National Merit Scholarship Program
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City University will begin offering National Merit scholarships annually after selection by the program as a sponsor university. OCU will offer at least three scholarships to National Merit finalists each year. Sponsor selections are based in part on the number of scholarship finalists who have listed the university as their first choice to attend. OCU has attracted 20 National Merit finalists during the past four years. “We are proud of the National Merit finalists who have studied at OCU,” said Eduardo Prieto, vice president of enrollment services at Oklahoma City University. “They are hardworking, highly-involved students who will go on to become very effective servant leaders. Our new partnership with the National Merit Scholarship Corporation will grow the number of opportunities we have for these deserving young students.” National Merit Scholarships honor exceptionally-able U.S. high school students and encourage them to pursue rigorous college studies.
