The Wyatt F. and Mattie M. Jeltz Scholarship Foundation was established by an endowment and is incorporated by the State of Oklahoma. Mr. & Mrs. Jeltz were black Oklahomans who devoted their lives to education, employment opportunities and
community service until their deaths in 1975 and 1977, respectively. They were vitally interested in assisting young people, particularly Black-Americans displaying strong academic ability, to acquire an education and a better life.

The Foundation provides scholarships for minority students to pay college related expenses such as tuition, fees, room and board, books and supplies, loan repayment, etc. To be eligible a student must be enrolled full-time in an Oklahoma accredited
college and have earned thirty (30) credit hours, with an accumulative grade point average of at least 2.8. Financial need and good character are also criteria to be considered.

college will be notified.
