Since our last update, there have been two terrific results.

First, and most importantly, we reached our goal of raising over $5,000 toward scholarships.  Those scholarships will help support undergraduate and graduate students this year.  Thank you to all of our donors.

Second, our relay team was successful Sunday morning in the OKC Marathon finishing in 3:31.07.  Political Science was no competition for us and we were also faster than teams from Sociology and Economics.

Racing for Scholars - 5K for $5K

March 30, 2017

As we compete to beat the Political Science Department in a 5K race we are asking our alumni, friends, family, and donors to join us by helping raise $5,000 for our students.  Our Team Members will be training a minimum of 10 weeks for the race.  Consider one of these levels of giving to support the scholarship fund. Thank you for joining the race.

Choose a giving level


Energy Booster

Help our students with an energy boost to the scholarship fund. This level covers the cost of a meal at Couch for students on campus.


Sideline Cheerer

Similar to when someone cheers at a race, our students need your encouragement to succeed. This donation covers a years worth of mandatory cultural and recreation services fees for a student.


Sole Supporter

Many of our students need support as they journey through their time at the University. A donation of $75 covers the cost of renting a textbook or purchasing a used one.


Motivated Miler

Help motivate our students to finish their semester strong. A gift at this level pays the cost of tuition and fees for approximately one hour of credit for an in-state student.


The Finish Line

Prevent our students from postponing their race toward graduation by contributing to their mandatory semester fees.
