WEOKIE Foundation would like to accept an application from promising and motivated candidates like you for its outstanding funding schemes. This year, WEOKIE Foundation has come with wonderful scholarships that will be offered to up to twenty-five talented high school seniors to help with their education. Candidates who are residing or studying in a school-based in Oklahoma, Canadian, Cleveland, Grady, Lincoln, Logan, McClain and Pottawatomie counties are encouraged to apply.
These funds will help financially to those students who are going for college education after completing their high school. Through this financial help, WEOKIE wants to ensure that students have access to the quality of higher education. They don’t end up taking admission at a college that provides cheap tuition but not quality education. Acquiring higher education comes with lots of expenses that financially challenge students cannot afford. By winning these scholarships, students can easily achieve educational goals that they have set for themselves.
WEOKIE Foundation is a charitable foundation offering financial education to the Oklahoma City and surrounding communities. This organization is owned by an appointed volunteer Board of Directors. It provides students and teachers with funding opportunities and a free financial literacy program to grades 2-12. Besides, it makes a local charitable contribution.
