Noble Foundation Invites Applications for Scholarships in Agriculture and Technology

The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation is inviting scholarship applications for students from southern Oklahoma seeking an undergraduate or graduate degree in an agriculture- or technology-related field.

Sam Noble Scholarships are available to eligible students from southern Oklahoma at any stage of their higher education career — from incoming freshmen to those seeking graduate degrees. Scholarships for students seeking an undergraduate degree in an agriculture-related field provide $2,500 of support per semester for up to nine semesters, while scholarships for graduate students provide $3,125 per semester for up to five semesters.

Applicants must be interested in pursuing their education at a university awarding a baccalaureate (or higher) degree through a division or college of agriculture, including Oklahoma State University, Oklahoma Panhandle State University, Texas Tech University (Lubbock campus), Texas A&M University (College Station campus), or any land-grant institution in the rest of the United States.

Scholarships for those seeking a degree or certification in a technology-related field provide $3,750 per year for up to two years. Applicants must pursue the degree or certification at Oklahoma State University's Oklahoma City or Okmulgee campus.

To be eligible to receive a scholarship, a student must plan to attend or be attending a qualifying university or technology training institution during the 2016-17 academic year and reside in one of fifteen south-central and southeastern Oklahoma counties (Atoka, Bryan, Carter, Choctaw, Coal, Garvin, Jefferson, Johnston, Love, Marshall, McCurtain, Murray, Pontotoc, Pushmataha, and Stephens).
