School of Ministry & Christian Thought Scholarship


We understand that the cost of college can be daunting. Our desire is that when our students graduate, financial concerns do not keep them from following God’s leading into ministry. Oklahoma Wesleyan University offers a 75% tuition scholarship for students in the School of Ministry & Christian Thought.

Depth in Christ. Mature understanding. Effective ministry.

At OKWU, these are the ends that we pursue. The School of Ministry & Christian Thought is more than an academic program – we are driven by our passionate love for God and for the world around us. We are a community of individuals seeking God together. We are a place of study, conversation, and questions. Our faculty is committed to nurturing the calling of God in the lives of our students.

Most importantly, we seek to support men and women who are spiritually equipped, integrating the foundation of biblical truth into our curriculum. Join us in pursuing the highest calling there is: to know God and to make Him known to others.
