Applying for scholarships at UA Little Rock is an important part of your college journey, and we want to make sure the process is easy for you!
Institutional scholarships for incoming freshmen and transfer students do not have separate applications to complete, with the exception of our mentored programs. Students must apply for admission, submit a high school transcript, and provide standardized test scores (ACT or SAT) to the Office of Admissions in order to be considered for most of our institutional scholarships (scholarships from the university).
Important: Incoming freshmen must have both a high school transcript and standardized test scores on file with the Office of Admissions before they will be considered for scholarships.
We’ve also made it easy for current and newly admitted students to apply for thousands of internal and external scholarships. Scholarship Universe (SU) is our scholarship-matching tool and will match you with the scholarships that you’re qualified for based on your responses to the scholarship-matching questions.
