The Oklahoma State School Boards Foundation will once again present the Dr. Bob Mooneyham Memorial Scholarship this spring to a deserving Oklahoma high school senior. Moving forward, we will be focused on students who plan to become Oklahoma educators.

That’s correct! Now it’s the Dr. Bob Mooneyham Memorial Scholarship for Future Teachers, and the change just feels right. This is a way for us to honor Dr. Mooneyham’s legacy, to support future educators and to make a difference for Oklahoma students. 

We know your classrooms are full of amazing students you would love to return to your district one day as certified members of your team. We hope you will share this scholarship opportunity with eligible students who plan to major in education.  

Applications for the one-year $5,000 scholarship are due by Jan. 13. The application can be completed online at   

To qualify, the candidate:   

  • Must be a high school student who will earn a diploma from an Oklahoma public high school during the 2022-23 school year.   

  • Must have plans to pursue a degree at an accredited Oklahoma college, university or career technology center beginning in the fall of 2023.  

  • Must have a minimum 3.0 unweighted high school GPA 

  • Must have a minimum 20 ACT or 1040 SAT score 

  • Must plan to major in education 

  • Must plan to be an Oklahoma educator 

Financial need will also be considered.  

Children or grandchildren of current OSSBA employees, officers, or board of director members, as well as international students, high school graduates and temporary residents, are ineligible to receive the scholarship.    

The successful student will be notified of his or her selection by mid-March. With permission from the district, a representative of the OSSBA Foundation will present the student with the scholarship during the school’s spring award or class day assembly.  

Mooneyham, for whom the scholarship is named, began his career as a teacher, coach and guidance counselor, before becoming a school superintendent and college professor. He served as executive director of OSSBA for 25 years – from 1975 to 2000. From the capitol to the classroom, he was a respected and caring professional who made a difference in the lives of students across the state.   

Mooneyham, who passed away in 2012, is honored annually during the OSSBA Bob Mooneyham Memorial Golf Tournament. Proceeds from past and future tournaments will be used to fund the scholarship in his name. We appreciate the many OSSBA members who support the golf tournament each year.
