Chickasaw Nation Establishes Scholarships at Oklahoma City University

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Chickasaw Nation has created a new scholarship program at Oklahoma City University’s Meinders School of Business to fund up to five scholarships per year as part of the Chickasaw Nation Native American Business Scholars Academy.

The program will provide full tuition scholarships to Chickasaw Nation undergraduate students studying business or software engineering. The Chickasaw Nation will nominate scholars.

"This new program will pair some of Oklahoma’s best and brightest students with world-class professors at OCU’s Meinders School of Business. Program participants will take part in a rigorous curriculum designed to prepare scholars for service and success," said OCU President Robert Henry. "We thank the Chickasaw Nation for making this new program a reality."

This generous scholarship from the Chickasaw Nation underscores Governor Bill Anoatubby’s commitment and belief that a high-quality education prepares students to be future leaders of America and their communities, said Steven C. Agee, dean of the Meinders School of Business.

Scholarship recipients will take part in innovative, highly-engaging academic experiences specific to the business scholars academy including seminars and workshops focusing on Native American business issues, academic internships and mentorships, networking opportunities and community service activities.
