PK-12 Educators

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 & Workshop Rates 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.

Private School Educators—Discount

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

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

Scholarships and workshop space are administered on a first come, first served basis, and enrollment will be based on the schedule below. We recommend you enroll as soon as you are eligible.
