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.
Typically, 50 students are chosen each year based on the following criteria:
Out of State Student (All states outside of Oklahoma are eligible.)
27 ACT or 1220 SAT*
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.
*While it is highly preferred that our scholars meet these ACT/SAT scores, it is not a requirement for admission into our program.
