Student Funding Opportunities

Provost Student Awards are available for both undergraduate and graduate students. These awards are administered by the Research Office and a cross-disciplinary committee of OU faculty members. See the tabs below for more information.

GReAT awards support tuition for graduate students whose work can be shown to support faculty research. GReAT awards will not replace student funding support from external funders. Faculty should apply on behalf of their students.
