The Colombian OU Alumni Association (COUAA) was funded in January 2007. The mission of COUAA is to offer scholarships to the most needed members of the Colombian Student Association (COLSA).
We are very proud that with the help of just a few members, we were able to award on February 2008 the first scholarships for a total of $7,500. For 2009, we raised $6,000 through our fundraising efforts, and the OU Alumni Association matched this amount. In total, we awarded $12,000 in scholarships to COLSA members during the eighth Colombian Night, on February 28, 2009. For 2010, we want to raise $20,000 and we are working hard to be able to help more students achieve their higher education goals and enrich their lives. The scholarships will be awarded during the Ninth Colombian Night on February 27, 2010 at OU.
We would like to thank those who gave donations during the past years, and made possible these awards. We hope that the number of members will increase during 2010, and together we could continue to give an example of unity and solidarity at the University of Oklahoma spreading the positive image of Colombia.
