COUAA was established in 2007 and until March 2016 it has already provided scholarships to 76 deserving students for a total amount of $103,600 dollars. This thanks to the generosity of Colombian Alumnus from the University of Oklahoma, OU professors, staff and other supporters of education in general.

Since May 2013, and thanks to the seed money and generosity of Juan Sebastian Galindo, COLSA President (2012-2013), and Yoana Walschap, COUAA was able to start an endowment for these scholarships to assure a lasting impact in the education of COLSA members during their years at this great university. To donate to the COUAA Endow Scholarship Fund, we invite you to follow the instructions provided in the "Donations" section.
