Public School Educators—Scholarships

Educators currently employed in Oklahoma public schools automatically receive full scholarships to attend OFAI. Scholarships include tuition and room and board. Scholarships are provided by the Oklahoma State Department of Education and private donors. Additional funding is provided by the Oklahoma Arts Council.

Educators are responsible for a non-refundable $30 registration fee, and visual arts classes have a $30 studio fee. See the Enrollment Info page for more information about fees and payments.

Unfortunately, substitute teachers do not qualify for scholarships.

Upon completion of each workshop, participants receive a certificate for 18 hours of professional development.

Oklahoma private school educators qualify for a discount on tuition, reducing the rate to $345. See the Enrollment Info page for more information about fees and payments.
