Here is a copy of our Scholarship Policy: Scholarship Policy

Please note that for 2019 the Scholarship is now available to graduate students and students attending vocational schools. There are a couple of caveats to be aware of:

  1. For Graduate Students - as indicated in the Application you can only have received 3 or fewer Oklahoma City Pipeliners Club Scholarships (a Scholarship is for a Fall/Spring Academic year). For example, if you received a scholarship in 2016, 2017 and 2018, then you are still eligible. But if you received a scholarship in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, then you are not eligible.
  2. For Vocational School Students - you are eligible to receive a Oklahoma City Pipeliners Club Scholarship if your school can administer the scholarship as with a bursar's office. Scholarships are not awarded directly to the recipient. Please check with the institution before applying to make sure they have this capability.
