Humanities Projects, Events, Scholarships and Services



The Humanities Division offers both Division and Talent Scholarships each year. The Division Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship that covers general enrollment tuition costs up to a specified amount but does not cover special fees or books. A student who plans to enroll in a minimum of six hours for the following fall semester may apply for a Humanities Division Scholarship in May each year. The applicant must be observably pursuing a degree in a Humanities Division major, be a citizen of the United States and a resident of the State of Oklahoma, and have completed at least twelve hours at Rose State College with a 3.0 GPA in the last semester of attendance.

Talent Scholarships are awarded in Art, Mass Communication, Choir, and Theatre. Some Theatre and Choir scholarships are available to new and returning Rose State students alike. Journalism and Art scholarships are awarded to returning Rose State students who show exceptional talent in that field. These scholarships are not cash awards and do not cover special fees or books. They cover general enrollment fees only, up to a specified amount per semester. Application for Talent Scholarships in Mass Communication and Art may be made through the Humanities Division office in May each year. Application for Choir and Theatre Talent Scholarships may be made through the appropriate contact person.
