2019 Dr. Debbie Blanke ScholarshipThe Dr. Debbie Blanke scholarship was established by the OKWHE Board in 2014, and is open to individuals enrolled as a graduate student in a higher education related degree program and who have attended at least one OKWHE conference. Preference for the scholarship is given to applicants who have earned at least 12 credit hours towards a graduate degree, worked at least three years in a higher education institution, and intend to pursue a career in higher education.
The scholarship was established to be a minimum $500 award, with the recipient encouraged to present at an OKWHE conference, and the opportunity to attend one career development workshop (fee waived) in the next three years when offered. As donations allow, the scholarships have ranged from $500 to $1,000.
