TULSA, Okla. (AP) â€” Oklahoma State University says it's created a scholarship fund to help students affected by the deadly tornadoes that raked parts of the state in May.
School officials say the fund wasÂ createdÂ to provide an opportunity for donorsÂ to support studentsÂ dealing with loss of life orÂ significant property damage.
Current or incoming students affected by the tornadoes should contact the school's Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.
Two of May's tornadoes were top-of-the-scale EF5s. One of those tornadoes hit Moore on May 20 with winds reaching 210 mph, and the other hit El Reno 11 days later with winds of 295 mph. Dozens of people were killed and hundreds more were injured.
The storms also damaged or destroyed thousands of homes and businesses.
