Meet the Family

The CLC Scholarship Program has a newly found structure. Our new structure provides all freshmen scholars with a student leader to help guide them through their college experience. The structure consists of the CLC Scholarship Program Coordinator, Graduate Assistant Success Coach, five Senior Peer Mentors, ten Junior Peer Mentors, and twenty Sophomore Peer Mentors. In the CLC Scholarship Program, we believe that having a family atmosphere is essential to student success. Our scholars take courses together throughout the school year, experience residential life together, take a retreat together, and work on projects such as volunteer service together. We guarantee that your scholar will have a wonderful experience here at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
