The Phyllis A. Keltner Foundation for Women Scholarship gives UALR students who are single mothers with dependent children an incredible opportunity to overcome some of the many difficult financial hurdles in getting a college education and to provide secure futures for their families.
The scholarship covers the cost of tuition and fees up to 12 hours enrollment, as well as books and supplies up to $300 per semester. Award amounts will be adjusted based on each recipient’s actual enrollment. Recipients of the Phyllis A. Keltner Foundation for Women Scholarship may enroll in more than 12 hours per semester, but will be responsible for paying the additional charges. Scholarships are renewable each year upon reapplication.
