About NOVA

NOVA is short for “Innovation!”

We know that students often come to college with big hopes and plans, but lack the tools, the team, and the resources that allow them to flourish and follow their passions.

The mission of the NOVA Fellowship at TU is to find, equip, and inspire students of all majors to follow their passion and develop innovative projects that benefit others – while still in school.

Here are a few qualities that we look for when choosing our brand new NOVA Fellows:

  • They make things happen and have an “itch” to make a difference.
  • They think up new ways to do things and like working with others.
  • They believe there’s no better way to learn than by doing.

Does this sound like you?

People aren’t numbers, so we’re not into GPAs.  We are a lot more interested in the passion of the person and their ability to collaborate and follow-through on projects. We’re creating a fun-loving and discovery-oriented community at TU, filled with students of all majors and talents and accomplished faculty and professionals.

If you’re selected, you’ll have access to:

  • Project funding
  • Travel to professional meetings
  • Team excursions to interesting Tulsa destinations
  • Graduation stolls
  • And more!

Our number one priority is to give students an unforgettable experience that develops their unique talents and shows them how to apply them to real-world projects. We will ensure that each student has opportunities for personal development and leadership, an array of resources, and ongoing collaboration and feedback with the larger NOVA community. At the end of the Fellowship experience, students will have a portfolio of their work and a certificate to show off.

We invite you to apply today to be part of NOVA! 

Student and faculty applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
