OSU-OKC Offers Free Tuition to Students Pursuing Science, Engineering

OSU-Oklahoma City and the Oklahoma Department of Transportation are offering a unique opportunity to 10 high school students through the Technical Associate Program (TAP) that includes free tuition, fees and books at the university. The TAP Scholarship committee will select 10 high school students that plan on pursuing construction technology, construction management or surveying technology to win the award.

Students who are selected to receive the scholarship will enter one of the OSU-OKC programs in fall 2012 and finish by December 2014. Students will be enrolled full time and must maintain an overall GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. There will also be a paid internship during the summer 2013.

Students have the opportunity to choose between construction technology, construction management and surveying technology. Each path is designed to provide students with the education they will need to excel in their career path in the construction industry.

Interested students must be eligible to meet the admission requirements for OSU-OKC and be a U.S. citizen to qualify for the scholarship. Each application packet must include the completed student scholarship application, completed teacher comment and ranking form, a typed resume, two letters of recommendation, and a typed statement covering the student’s wishes to participate in TAP and which OSU-OKC program he or she selected.

For more information, contact OSU-OKC engineering department head Terry Clinefelter at (405) 945-3362 or clinefe@osuokc.edu.
