Irene P. & Samuel E. Frierson Educational Trust

Dr. Samuel Evander and Irene P. Frierson were longtime residents of Oklahoma City, where Dr. Frierson practiced medicine for more than 40 years. A native of Mississippi, Dr. Frierson graduated from Tulane University before serving as an army surgeon in France during World War I. Dr. Frierson died in 1962.

The Friersons created the Frierson Educational Trust to provide scholarships for students to attend college in Oklahoma. In 1998, administration of the scholarship was transferred to the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. Awards benefit second, third and fourth-year students attending Oklahoma colleges or universities through the Trustee Scholarship Initiative.
