Geoffrey Pill Honors College Scholarship
Dr. Geoffrey Pill is a former Oklahoma State University professor. He joined the OSU community in 1965 as a French and English professor. Before retiring in 1991, he also served as the Arts and Sciences Director of Curricular Affairs. He was an early organizer of the University Honors Program and contributed greatly to the development of the Honors College as we know it today.
Although Dr. Pill currently resides in his home country of England, he is still dedicated to providing opportunities for deserving students and we are honored to offer a scholarship in his name.

Honors College Lew Wentz Scholarships
The Lew Wentz Foundation is widely known on campus as one of the most charitable sources of scholarship funding for high-performing and motivated students. Wentz himself was unable to afford to attend college. However, with an unparalled work ethic and passion for serving others, he amassed his wealth in the oil industry and made countless charitable contributions throughout his lifetime. Today, his legacy and generosity continue to benefit students and inspire them to achieve the highest levels of leadership and scholarship.
In addition to the Wentz Scholarships and Wentz Research Projects which are made available to all university students, the Honors College offers a need-based scholarship to its members. Students need not apply. Every active Honors Student is automatically in consideration for the award and selections are made of the basis of financial need (determined by a student's FAFSA). Students are eligible to receive this award multiple times throughout their involvement with the Honors College.
