OKWIT awards annual scholarships ranging from $500-2,500 to empower women to pursue and complete their undergraduate and graduate degrees in STEM fields (science, technology, education, and math), as well as to reduce the financial barrier that traditionally accompanies higher education.
Scholarships have been an essential part of our mission since our incorporation in 2016, and to date, we are proud to have awarded over $20,000 to Oklahoma women in STEM.
