§70-2621. Tulsa Reconciliation Education and Scholarship Program.
There is hereby created the Tulsa Reconciliation Education and Scholarship Program. The purpose of the program is to provide a scholarship award to residents of the Tulsa School District, which was greatly impacted both socially and economically by the civil unrest that occurred in the City of Tulsa during 1921. Beginning with the 2002-2003 school year, or as soon thereafter as practicable, and subject to the availability of funds, the program shall each year make scholarships available to qualified residents of the Tulsa School District, who meet the criteria set forth in Sections 2623 and 2624 of this title, and who are intending to pursue studies at an institution of higher education in The Oklahoma State System of Higher Education or a private institution of higher education, or who are intending to pursue studies in a postsecondary career technology education program. The scholarship shall be an amount of not more than the equivalent of the average amount of resident tuition for which an eligible Tulsa Reconciliation Education and Scholarship Program participant enrolled at an institution in The Oklahoma State System of Higher Education or a postsecondary career technology education program, whichever is applicable, is obligated to pay. The scholarship shall be paid as provided for in Section 2625 of this title. The further purpose of this program is to establish and maintain a variety of educational support services whereby residents who qualify for the program will be prepared for success in postsecondary endeavors.
