Each year, the Foundation hosts a scholarship competition held between January and mid-March. Winners are chosen by a committee from all eligible student applications received. In April 2023, the Foundation will award $42,000 to 14 Tulsa County area high school seniors to attend college in the fall.
HAF also will award $9,000 in scholarships to previous award winners as retention scholarships, and those attending any Oklahoma private or public institution, including those in the Tulsa area. These five schools include the University of Tulsa, University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Oral Roberts University and Tulsa Community College.
“Earning the HAF scholarship validates all the hard work I invested in high school. As a first-generation college student, my hope is to be a symbol to other kids like me and the larger Hispanic community.”
