Scholarships  

The scholarship application link will be available beginning March 1st.  Please click on the session you want to enroll in on the Summer Camp page to access the registration link.  You must register for a session of Summer Camp to apply for a partial scholarship.

 

 

The  Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission (OAC) is the primary funding source for the Sooner Flight Academy Partial Scholarships.  Each year, the OAC grants institutions like the Sooner Flight Academy funding from their Education Grant.  If you would like to learn more about the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission, please visit their website (www.ok.gov/oac).  Private donors also contribute to the Sooner Flight Academy Scholarship fund.

Partial scholarships are only available for our Summer Camp Programs.  Scholarships are not available for extended day curriculum.  Extended day curriculum is an additional fee of $50.00 per student. 

Sooner Flight Academy partial scholarships are based on need but have no pre-determined income requirements.  The only eligibility requirement for a summer camp partial scholarship is to be registered for a session of summer camp.  We cannot consider any partial scholarship applications without a corresponding summer camp registration.

While the goal of the Scholarship Selection Committee is to make it possible for as many campers to attend as possible, applicants are not guaranteed to receive any scholarship assistance for camp.  The scholarship selection committee will consider financial need and/or extenuating circumstances when determining awards.  

During the camp registration process, you will be given the opportunity to tell us you wish to apply for a scholarship.  Once you have registered for a session of summer camp, a link to the scholarship will be available from your parents page (click the parents tab at the top).  Look for "Request Scholarship" in the menu on the left side.  Please note that the deadline to apply for a partial scholarship has been moved to April 1st

Summer Camp registration begins March 1st.  The partial scholarship applications will open at that time.  The partial scholarship application deadline is April 1st.  NO applications will be accepted after April 1st.  

You will need to have ready the following information to complete the application form:

  • Camp Session registered for (from your summer camp registration confirmation email)
  • Camper’s full name
  • Number of people in household
  • Household adjusted gross income for last year
  • Description of family circumstances (why you are requesting scholarship assistance to pay for summer camp)
  • Creative Submission (essay, poem, story, picture, diorama, etc.)

Your child should convey to the scholarship selection committee, in some creative way, why he/she wants to come to camp.  This could be an essay, poem, story, picture, diorama, etc.   Please upload the creative submission as an attachment (or can be scanned) and submit it digitally with your scholarship application.  Please call us at 405-325-1635 or email us at flightcamp@ou.edu if you have any questions. 

The Scholarship Selection Committee will meet during the first week of April.  If you have been awarded a partial scholarship, you will be notified by email or phone by April 15th.  We require a written acceptance (by USPS, fax, or email) to apply the partial scholarship to your account.  If we do not receive a written acceptance within 7 days, your partial scholarship will be awarded to another applicant.  Scholarships are applied directly to your camp balance and the parent or responsible party will be billed for the remainder of the balance which is due by May 15th.  All remaining balances must be paid over the phone by credit card by calling 405-325-6808 or by check mailed to our registration office at :

*Please note we cannot accept online payments for balances due.

If you cannot attend summer camp with the amount awarded and need additional scholarship funds to attend, please include that in your acceptance/declination response.  This does not automatically cancel your registration.  If you choose to cancel your registration, please see Summer Camp FAQ about cancelling your registration.
