Over the past year, you have likely seen UALR alumni featured in our marketing campaign UALR Grads at Work. They have all earned degrees, are succeeding in their chosen fields, and are active citizens in our community. But it was only a few years ago that they were in the classroom and, not unlike many of our students today, working as they struggled to make ends meet financially.
More than 80 percent of our student body requires some form of financial aid, and unfortunately much of that aid is in the form of student loans. Private philanthropy, usually in the form of scholarships, relieves the financial burden students experience while earning their degrees.
Our students work hard to add value to their lives through their education, and we appreciate the generous financial support our donors provide by establishing endowments that continue to help our students today, tomorrow, and for generations to come.
