New Scholarship Opportunity for Students

Thanks to an unprecedented financial gift, UA Little Rock undergraduate students have more opportunities than ever to pursue a path to graduation and a rewarding career.

Requirements and How to Apply

Incoming freshmen and incoming transfer students

The additional funds will allow for more students to receive scholarships. As long as students apply for admission (and have a FAFSA on file) by August 1, they will be considered for merit or transfer scholarships for the 2020-21 school year. No separate application is needed for incoming freshmen and incoming transfers. Eligible students will be automatched to the most beneficial scholarship for them.

Current students

The additional funds will also be used for new need-based scholarships that students can apply for. Current students, incoming freshmen and incoming transfers can apply. Awards will be based on a student’s unmet financial need. These funds can be used toward tuition, fees, books, or room and board. Recipients will be required to send a thank you letter. The new funds will be available for new and continuing students who apply by Aug. 1, 2020.

Other requirements for need-based aid:

  • Undergraduate status
  • Full or part-time
  • Degree seeking
