Hello Educators, Students and Parents:
We are excited to share Oklahoma State University (OSU) in partnership with Northeastern Oklahoma Agriculture and Mechanical College (NEO) are collaborating to provide scholarship and support opportunities for Native American high school students.
OSU and NEO received two grants that will provide support for nine students to earn an Associate’s degree at NEO and continue with a seamless transfer to OSU to complete their dual Bachelor’s degrees, one in Entomology and one in Plant and Soil Sciences. This means each scholar will earn three degrees in four years and will obtain the education necessary to become leaders in food production and sustainability.
The overarching goals of the project(s) are to increase opportunities for Native American students to become skilled individuals who can will contribute to tribal food sustainability and food sovereignty.
