SWOSU SCHOLARSHIPS

Join Our Team of Stafford Scholars

Stafford Scholars are the backbone of our success, therefore they are interviewed extensively and hand-picked by our museum staff. We choose those who show an interest in people, an interest in learning, and those who are able to receive instruction well. We have a lot of moving parts that keep things running smoothly and that requires teamwork from everyone. To be a Stafford Scholar means to be a part of something much bigger than yourself and only a few are up to the challenge.

 

Stafford Scholars receive scholarship money each year and are guaranteed a part-time job. If this interests you, contact the SWOSU Foundation office and apply to be a Stafford Scholar today.

In Their Own Words...

I enjoy working at the museum because my co-workers are very friendly, it’s a very nice, neat, and clean facility. The scholarship is a nice bonus for Stafford scholars! I've learned a lot about space history and how Thomas Stafford greatly impacted the world!

In Their Own Words...

As an engineering student, I have the opportunity to create and maintain exhibits here at the museum. Working here has improved my skill set for my projected field as well as my problem solving skills. I enjoy learning about the artifacts that come into the museum for future exhibits.
