We are a group of Colombian alumni from the University of Oklahoma who understand the value of education and the effort that some Colombian students are making to come to OU to pursue a degree. The mission of our association is to give back to OU, through a Scholarship Fund for COLSA members, what the university HAS provided to us . . . education, experience and knowledge.

Giving back is a great feeling, and if we do it together, the impact to our Colombian community will be enormous.

COUAA was established in 2007 and until March 2017 it has already provided 115 scholarships to deserving students for a total amount of $122,600 dollars. This thanks to the generosity of Colombian Alumnus from the University of Oklahoma, OU professors, staff and other supporters of education in general.

With your support we will be able to reach our goal of raising $20,000 in scholarships this year.
