Tulsa Will Pay You $10,000 To Move There Now
1,000 people have already applied for the opportunity.
If you've long dreamed of livin' on Tulsa time, well, now's your chance. The Tulsa-based George Kaiser Family Foundation has launched Tulsa Remote, which will pay selected individuals $10,000 cash, along with a monthly housing stipend, space in Tulsa's Top coworking community (in addition to regular meetings and workshops with fellow members and local entrepreneurs), 36 Degrees North, and more, simply for relocating to the Land of the Golden Hurricane. The idea is to recruit talented, passionate workers to Tulsa and the larger Tulsa county area, which, in turn may inspire larger business initiatives and startup companies to flourish there.
"Really, the future of the city depends on it,"said George Kaiser Family Foundation Ken Levit, as quoted in Tulsa World. "We are in an exciting spot. Our Arts District is flourishing. Developments like the Gathering Place and Mother Road Market are enticing. This is a way to give an extra incentive to bring in talented people."
To apply, you must be self-employed or have full-time remote employment outside of Tulsa county, be 18 years or older, and eligible to work in the United States. You also have to be able to move to Tulsa in the next six months. You can not already be employed in Tulsa or Tulsa county. As Tulsa World shared in an update yesterday, around 1,000 individuals have already applied and the first cohort will include 20-to-25 people and the program will begin early next year.
