NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma College of Law has announced the Frank and Lucille Pope Endowed Scholarship, established by the couple's estate. The gift is more than $620,000 and will generate approximately $31,050 annually to be awarded to eligible students.

A preference will be given to American Indians, specifically of Cherokee descent.  

Pope was born in Tulsa to Frank Pope Sr. and Johanna Chambers Pope. His mother was of Cherokee descent. He graduated from the OU College of Business in 1950 and earned his law degree from the OU College of Law in 1956. Pope served in the U.S. Army during World War II and as an attorney with the U.S. government in Washington.

Lucille Pope was born in Lebanon, Pa. She became a secretary and relocated to Washington, where she served as secretary to the chief of chaplains for the Army and later at the Pentagon in the office of Gen. Omar Bradley.

Frank and Lucille Pope married in 1974 and lived in northern Virginia until they retired in 1981. He died in 2012 and she died in 2015.

Office for the Advancement of American Indians in Medicine and Science

http://www.healthsciences.okstate.edu/oaaims/

The initiative aims to increase the number of American Indians practicing medicine and working in the science fields through mentoring and targeted programs. Ultimately, efforts made by the OAAIMS will provide Native American students means to be successful in these fields by offering hands-on experiences that combine Native culture, medicine, and science.
