Current scholarships come from dollars contributed to the general scholarship fund. The general scholarship fund works like a cash account, giving Financial Services ready access to scholarship dollars that can be immediately applied to a student’s bill. Current scholarships provide Oklahoma Christian with the means to bring students to OC that might not have the means otherwise.

Although we accept any size gift to our general scholarship fund, our primary vehicle for raising general scholarship funds is Oklahoma Christian Associates. All OC Associates are invited to the annual Associates Dinner. This gala event is a special night of entertainment and high-class fun for all OC Associates from around the country. This dinner is held at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.
