Former Congressman Wes and Oklahoma A&M Regent Lou Watkins truly believe in the virtues of helping under-served communities in other countries as a means to both improve their quality of life and to serve as positive representatives of Oklahoma and the United States. As a result, the Wes and Lou Watkins Matthew 25:40 Scholarships have been made possible by a generous commitment from the Watkins to establish an endowment providing permanent scholarship support to Oklahoma State University students. These scholarships provide an additional incentive for students to travel abroad to participate in community improvement projects in developing countries.
