Scholarships are funds used to pay for a higher education that do not have to be repaid to the provider. Scholarships may be awarded based on any number of criteria including academics, achievements, hobbies, talents, affiliations with various groups or career aspirations. They are available from federal and state governments, large corporations, local businesses, professional organizations, universities and individuals and each has its own requirements applicants must fulfill to be eligible for the award. Begin the process by completing the FAFSA and the General UALR Scholarship Application. The application deadline for most UALR scholarships is March 1. First, it helps to understand the types of scholarships offered.
