Keeping a college education attainable and affordable makes a profound difference in the lives of UCO students. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the UCO Foundation assists students with their college expenses by offering more than 450 scholarships and awards each year.

While each scholarship and award has its own unique selection criteria, they all reward our students who work hard to maintain high academic standards, give back to the university and the community through their leadership and service and represent UCO's core values of character, civility and community.
