Ten Oklahoma State University students have been awarded Bailey Family Memorial Trust Scholarships that will enable them to study abroad during the current academic year.

The trust was established in 1982 by J.B. Bailey, and OSU graduate and Tulsa attorney, and his brother, Richard E. Bailey, longtime OSU humanities professor and founder of the first study abroad program in OSU’s College of Arts and Sciences, in memory of their grandmother Ida L. Davis and mother Lalla D. Bailey. 

The purpose of the trust is to provide scholarship support for full-time OSU students, regardless of their major field of study, to study the liberal arts at a recognized university outside of the U.S. 

Since the first awards were made for the 1985-86 academic year, more than $2 million has been expended from the trust, allowing 275 OSU students to study in 36 different countries. From the first year in which two students were awarded $18,000, the program has grown so that this year’s recipients have received funds totaling $104,000.
