Scholarship

Every year, the Junior League of Tulsa, Inc. awards scholarships to women in the Tulsa area to assist with funding their education.  Our scholarships are directly funded by our Annual Mentorship Luncheon where we recognize the recipients.

Mrs. W. Albert Cook Scholarship

Two scholarships up to $3,000 will be presented to women interested in furthering their education as “non-traditional students” at an accredited college, university or technical trade school. The recipients will be selected based upon their commitment to their education and demonstrated financial need.

A “non-traditional” student is someone who has gone back to school to further her education. She may have had a break in her education due to unforeseen life circumstances or a family situation. A “non-traditional” student may have decided to further her education after a life changing event or overcoming an obstacle. She may also have circumstances which limit her income available for tuition.

  • Live in the Tulsa area (Tulsa, Rogers, Wagoner, Osage, Creek or Okmulgee Counties)
  • Possess a high school diploma or GED
  • Not be a member, sustainer or immediate relative of a member of the Junior League Tulsa
  • Be a female, currently enrolled or soon-to-be enrolled as a “non-traditional” student
  • Be willing to submit income information if requested

Completed applications must be received by 5 pm, November 18, 2016. Interviews for finalists will be held on January 2017.  Scholarship Recipients will be recognized at the Junior League of Tulsa Mentorship Luncheon on February 10, 2017.
