The University of Oklahoma has been given a million dollars to help students study abroad.

It's the largest one-time gift the university has ever received for its study abroad scholarship program.

OU announced today it received the money from the Lobeck-Taylor Family Foundation.

Former Tulsa Mayor Kathy Taylor and her husband started the foundation in part to help Oklahomans further their education.

"I am deeply grateful to Kathy Taylor, Bill Lobeck, Elizabeth Frame Ellison and Molly Pellegrini for making this critically important gift, which will help give our students the opportunity to study abroad," OU President David Boren said at the December meeting of the OU Board of Regents. "Global skills and perspectives are a key part of the comprehensive education needed for the next generation of leaders."

Taylor is an OU alumna and serves on OU's College of International Studies Board of Visitors.
