PSO STEM Grants - Press Release      
Agricultural education in Oklahoma is getting a big boost with the announcement of a $200,000 grant from the American Electric Power Foundation to fund FFA STEM After-School Grants for the next five years.
The AEP Foundation is the charitable arm of American Electric Power, parent company of Tulsa-based electric provider, Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO).

The announcement was made today, June 1, 2020, by PSO president and chief operating officer Peggy Simmons, who noted that the grant will expand and strengthen the program, which over the past two years has provided more than $60,000 to 24 FFA chapters in PSO-served communities across the state.

Scholarship Program      
The goal of the Oklahoma FFA Foundation is to provide a $1,000 continuing education scholarship to the state winner in every area of Proficiency awards, Career Development Event high individuals and Leadership Development Event winners. Although we have made significant progress over the past few years, there are still many areas unfunded. The complete list of scholarships needed is found in the Sponsorship Opportunities list under the Support page. We also provide scholarships for the Ag-Ed Teaching Academy held at OSU each summer and for selected students to attend the Washington Leadership Conference.

Scholarship sponsors are greatly appreciated and recognized at the State FFA Convention at a meal function (proficiency, CDE and LDE scholarships) or on stage as they make the scholarship presentation (for ag-ed teaching academy or WLC scholarships).

Students who have earned an award area scholarship may request the funds after their high school graduation and once enrolled in a program at the University or technical school of their choice. Students have until they are 25 years of age or seven years past their high school graduation date to request their scholarship. The student's school ID number, bursar address and enrollment schedule is required in August or December for scholarship disbursement. Half of the scholarship is paid to the student's school upon first request and the second half may be requested for payment directly to the student once the Foundation has received a current transcript and proof of enrollment for the next semester.

Leadership Intern Program      
The OK FFA Foundation Leadership Intern Program is designed to allow high school FFA members the opportunity to observe firsthand the development and management techniques used to construct and facilitate the Oklahoma FFA Convention experience. They will also have responsibilities representing the Foundation with sponsors and special guests throughout the convention and serving in the Foundation booth in the Career Fair. There may also be opportunities for the Foundation interns to represent the Association at special events throughout the school year. These are not required events.

Four (two boys and two girls) high school juniors will be selected from FFA Chapters across the state. These four FFA members will report to the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City on Monday and will complete the program on Wednesday evening.

AMBASSADORS - Additional applicants may be selected to serve as "Ambassadors" at the convention to escort sponsors and special guests. These students will meet early Tuesday morning for orientation and will serve for a single day (or 3 sessions). Their lunch for their day of service will be complimentary.

Blue Jacket Program      
The Oklahoma FFA Foundation “Blue Jacket Program” is designed to provide 8th, 9th, and 10th grade FFA members the opportunity to earn their first FFA jacket. SandRidge Energy Corporation, Express Pros/Robert Funk, the FFA Foundation Presidents Club, and Dr. and Mrs. Nels Peterson will provide FFA jackets to deserving FFA members across the state. The intent of the program is to seek applications from students who might not be able to afford an FFA jacket other than one offered through the Blue Jacket program.
