Attracting top students from across the nation and more than 100 countries around the world, OU provides a major university experience in a private college atmosphere. OU is number one in the nation in the number of National Merit Scholars enrolled among public universities and is in the top ten of public universities in the nation in the graduation of Rhodes Scholars. The OU Honors College is one of the largest honors programs among public universities in the United States, matching the University’s best and brightest students with faculty in classrooms of 19 or fewer students. OU is one of the few public universities in the nation to cap the class size of first-year English composition courses at no more than 19. OU offers students the opportunity to study abroad in over 100 cities and 50 countries, including our signature program in Arezzo, Italy. The number of endowed faculty professorships and chaired positions has increased from less than 100 15 years ago to more than 560 today. This enables OU to keep and attract faculty researchers of national and international stature. For four of the last six years the OU Debate team has won the National Debate Championship. Other students from across campus have worked in teams to also win top awards in the National Petroleum Engineering Competition, the National Kennedy Center Competition in Drama, and the entrepreneurship program consistently ranks in the top five nationally. OU has emerged as a pacesetter for public higher education in the United States and is ranked by The Princeton Review among the top 10 public universities in the nation in terms of academic excellence and cost for students. OU has more than doubled the amount of private scholarships in five years and raised its scholarship goal to $250 million. In addition, OU’s private endowment has increased more than five-fold since 1994, growing from $204 million to more than $1.8 billion. There is a true sense of family on the OU campus. Serving as a model for other public universities, OU established the Faculty-In-Residence program which places faculty members and their families in each of our residence halls to foster faculty and student interaction and encourage intergenerational friendships. Further, a different professor adopts each floor of the residence halls as well as each fraternity and sorority, allowing students and faculty to build relationships outside of the classroom. OU’s Fred Jones Museum of Art ranks in the top 5 university art museums in the United States. It received the Weitzenhoffer Collection, the largest gift of French Impressionist art ever given to a public university in the US. The Sam Noble Museum of Natural History is the largest university based museum of its kind in the world. OU’s Bizzell Memorial Library features one of the three largest history of science collections in the world, and is the only place in the United States where you can hold a book with Galileo's handwriting in your own hands.

The history of JFEW traces an arc from 1880 to the present. Since then, the Foundation’s name has evolved along with the social attitudes and opportunities for women. Likewise, our means of assistance have changed, but our focus has been constant: providing needed assistance to women striving to attain an education. Letter From JFEW Chair Sharon L Weinberg headshot For over 130 years, the Jewish Foundation for Education of Women has provided scholarship and other support to financially-needy women who aspire to achieve their career and other life goals through education. Over the course of its history, and in response to the ever-changing times, the Foundation has taken on new and different roles in the life of its scholarship recipients. In addition to giving scholarships to women of varied backgrounds, ethnic and religious affiliations, as entry into the workforce has become increasingly complex and competitive, JFEW has broadened its support to include not only scholarships but also opportunities for internships, study abroad, networking, and other mentoring-type experiences. JFEW is proud of its heritage, rooted in two central tenets of Judaism: to provide support for education and to help those in need. It is also proud of its ability to respond to the changing roles and responsibilities of women in society, while remaining true to its core values. JFEW continues to value those who aspire to achieve through learning and initiative. Toward that end, JFEW strives to achieve its goals with purpose and commitment, and to celebrate these same qualities in our scholarship recipients. JFEW continues to value the importance of partnership and community. Toward that end, JFEW has turned to colleges, universities, and other institutional partners to administer JFEW scholarships and to create programs and other support services that facilitate the exchange and sharing of resources that strengthen the impact of our scholarship support. JFEW continues to value the importance of education as a path to professional achievement and social good. Toward that end, JFEW embraces education as a means to opportunity, professional fulfillment and service to the larger community. It believes strongly that succeeding academically provides the potential for meaningful work which makes it possible to care for ourselves, our families, and society.
