TULSA, OK – April 4, 2014 – Tulsa Tech Superintendent and CEO, Dr. Steve Tiger, along with the Board of Education, announce today the creation of the Accelerating Independence Scholarship.
“We are truly excited about this valuable financial aid opportunity for our students just out of high school,” Tiger said. “Hopefully this will assist those students to continue their path towards a great career and future.”
Considered a ‘Gap’ scholarship, the Accelerating Independence Scholarship covers 100% of tuition for students with GED or high school diplomas from any of the in-district, public, parochial, or home-school through the age of 23. A Gap scholarship assists students who do not have the funds available to meet tuition cost. 100% of a students’ Federal Pell Grant is applied towards tuition prior to awarding the scholarship.
The Accelerating Independence Scholarship is available to those who meet specific criteria. Applicants must be high school or home-school graduates with a 2.0 or “C” average and must provide a final high school transcript, and a valid FAFSA must be on file for each applicant. Students must also complete all admission requirements, be accepted for admission, and be enrolled in order for a scholarship to be awarded.
To apply and to get more information about the Accelerating Independence Scholarship, please visit our Financial Aid page or call our Financial Aid office at 918-828-5000.
