The Da Vinci Foundation is an historic educational partnership whose goal is to impact the arts, sciences, humanities and education in Oklahoma through increased partnerships, programming and public awareness. It is the vision of the Da Vinci Institute to provide programs that encourage critical thinking and creativity and promote partnerships and collaborations with other organizations that will further these programs.
Each year a committee selects a winner(s) of the DaVinci Scholar's award in P-12 teaching. The selected educator will receive a $1000 stipend and a Da Vinci Scholar Plaque designed specifically for this award. The P-12 school district and the graduating institution of higher education will receive a copy of the plaque. Da Vinci Scholars will be recognized at the annual Spring Da Vinci Banquet.
