Pat Tull Memorial Scholarship
for Oklahoma Women Business Owners

PatTull250NAWBO Central Oklahoma chapter has established the “Pat Tull Memorial Scholarship for Oklahoma Women Business Owners” to assist women who are just starting their businesses.

Honoring charter member Pat Tull, this scholarship provides assistance to women just starting their businesses. Pat started her handwriting analysis/forensic document examiner business in the 1970s – when few women were business executives – and much fewer were business owners. She was a strong proponent of mentoring women business owners. NAWBO members valued Pat’s dedication and support.

The call for scholarship applicants takes place once a year, inviting women who are just building their business concept or in their first two years of business to apply. All applications will be reviewed by The Central Oklahoma NAWBO Scholarship Committee.

NAWBO Central Oklahoma Chapter is a 501(c)6 not-for-profit organization. The Pat Tull Scholarship is administered through The Communities Foundation of Oklahoma, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and donations may be tax deductible (contact your tax adviser for more information).
