Alumni Offers Cap and Gown Scholarships for Fall Commencement
Seniors who graduate this fall and plan to walk at the December commencement can register to win a cap and gown at no cost.
The UALR Alumni Association will provide 12 lucky UALR graduates with reimbursements up to $65.00 for their cap and gown purchased through the UALR Bookstore.
Graduates should register for the free cap and gown through the UALR Alumni Association at Gradfest from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 10 and 11, at the Donaghey Student Center Lower Concourse.
Graduates who are volunteers and active members of the UALR Alumni Association, including those participating in the UALR Grads@Work ad campaign, will visit with soon-to-be alumni about the importance of joining the UALR Alumni Association, and about some of the best member benefits the Association has ever offered.
New graduates are encouraged to join the association for a special discounted new-grad rate of $20. Membership dues support current students through programs like the cap and gown scholarship. Many graduates demonstrate their loyalty and dedication to UALR by becoming early lifetime members in the association.
A lifetime membership is $500 and is 95 percent deductible contribution to the UALR Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship Program, which awarded 18 students scholarships to attend UALR this fall.
