About the Application Process:  

The McKnight Scholar Leadership Program begins with the selection of a diverse community of out-of-state students with a passion for service and extraordinary potential for influence. 

Selection Criteria 

Typically, 50 students are chosen each year based on the following criteria:

  • Out of State Student

  • 27 ACT

  • 3.75 GPA

  • Proven Leadership Ability 

  •  Committment to Service

It is the expectation that McKnight Scholars become more aware of their passions and aptitudes, gain skills to foster collaboration in following those passions, understand how communities grow and improve, make an impact on their home community, and prepare for influence beyond graduation. The program seeks to compliment the scholars’ entire Oklahoma State University experience bringing a rich context and focus to their academic journey.
