12th Annual President's Scholarship Gala

Patrons will enjoy a full night of entertainment including dinner, live music, a spirited auction, and hear impactful stories from students. With reduced state allocations to education, gifts from individuals, alumni and corporations are crucial in supporting Langston University students with the necessary funds to attain a high-quality education. Because of your support, students will have the resources to become the next generation leaders in our communities. The funds generated will benefit Langston University students by providing need and merit based scholarships. We pride ourselves on assisting deserving students in achieving their dreams of earning college degrees.

The President’s Scholarship Gala allows Langston University to continue to offer scholarships for students to carry on the Langston legacy. This year's event will be held on Friday, October 20, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.
