The Hatton W. Sumners Scholarship is a prestigious, nationally-recognized full scholarship program. Oklahoma City University School of Law is one of only two programs in the country to offer these awards. The award includes a renewable full-tuition scholarship, an annual book allowance and a small living stipend.
Sumners scholarships are designed to foster and encourage excellence in legal scholarship and to assist students in developing the highest sense of duty to serve his or her community. The trustees of the Hatton W.
