Scholarship is named for Carl Whitcomb

Staff | September 30, 2010

Oklahoma State has initiated an endowment at the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture for undergraduate scholarships in nursery management.

This fund is eligible for the Pickens Legacy Match if it reaches $50,000 in total contributions and pledges by Feb. 26, 2011. The $50,000 fund would then receive a $75,000 match from Boone Pickens’ estate to result in a $125,000 scholarship fund at OSU, paying out 5 percent annually for scholarships.

When fully funded, it would provide $6,250 in annual scholarships to deserving young people interested in the nursery industry.

Checks can be made payable to the OSU Foundation, Carl Whitcomb fund, 400 S. Monroe, Stillwater, OK 74076.
