UA Little Rock provides numerous scholarships and financial awards to new and continuing students. Incoming freshmen and transfer students only need to apply for admission in order to be considered for most of our institutional scholarships (institutional scholarships are the ones that come from the university).

For thousands of internal and external scholarships, current and newly admitted students can use ScholarshipUniverse (SU), our scholarship-matching tool, to find scholarships that they’re qualified for.

Scholarships for New UA Little Rock Students

We offer numerous scholarships for incoming freshmen. There are also scholarship opportunities for incoming transfer students. These scholarships for new students are based on academic merit, leadership, talent, and extracurricular involvement. We will look at all of these criteria when we consider you for our new student scholarships.

Scholarships for All Students

Many current students are unaware of the general private scholarships available through private funds, supported by our generous university donors and supporters. Many are available for part-time and non-traditional students.

If you have declared a major, it’s always good to check with your department for any other opportunities available for students in that program.
