Scholarships at UALR
UALR provides numerous scholarships to the students each year, and for the 2016-2017 school the number of recipients is set to increase.
All you have to do to benefit is be a student at UALR with a current FAFSA application on file. After a scholarship search and submission of other required documents, you’re in the race to be awarded more money for a successful college career.
Freshman scholarships for the campus include Donaghey Scholars Program, Chancellor’s Leadership Corps, UALR Academic Achievement, Freshman Award, Engineering and Information Technology (EIT), and other private scholarships.
The school also provides a new Arkansan Non-Resident Tuition Award which pays 80-90% of the difference between resident and nonresident tuition. Science Scholars, EAST Scholars and the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation in STEM can also be obtained.
Some scholarships based on academic department are available and may be based on performance or the submission of an essay.
Once you have declared your major, you can apply for scholarships within your particular college with their own application, committee, and selection process. Some of these include the Arkansas Real Estate Scholarship through the College of Business; the Ruby M. Duke Ancient History Award through the College of Arts, Letters, and Sciences; and the BLSA Endowed Scholarship through the William H. Bowen School of Law.
There are also single parent scholarships, alumni scholarships and athletic scholarship available that are separate from the UALR private scholarships and require separate applications.
