Twelve Bailey Scholars named at OSU

— Twelve Oklahoma State University students have been awarded Bailey Family Memorial Trust Scholarships that will enable them to study abroad during the upcoming academic year.

The trust was established in 1982 by J.B. Bailey, an OSU graduate and Tulsa attorney, and his brother, Richard E. Bailey, longtime OSU humanities professor and founder of the first study abroad program in OSU’s College of Arts and Sciences, in memory of their grandmother Ida L. Davis and mother Lalla D. Bailey.

The purpose of the trust is to provide scholarship support for full-time OSU students, regardless of their major field of study, to study the liberal arts at a recognized university outside of the U.S.

Since the first awards were made for the 1985-86 academic year, nearly $1.8 million has been expended from the trust, allowing 249 OSU students to study in 34 different countries. From the first year in which two students were awarded $18,000, the program has grown so that in 2010-11, the 12 Bailey Scholars will receive a total of $99,700.

Bailey Scholars and their countries for study during the next year are:

·      Jacob Biros, Stillwater chemical engineering junior with a minor in Japanese, who will study at Kansai Gaidai University in Japan in the fall

·      David Buckland, Everett, Mass., psychology junior with a minor in Japanese, who will study at Kansai Gaidai University in Japan in the fall

·      Courtney Bullock, Bartlesville Spanish junior, who will study at the Universidad de Las Americas in Puebla, Mexico in the fall
