UCA president seeks to untangle scholarships

Posted: Updated:

CONWAY (Log Cabin Democrat) - Six days after University of Central Arkansas auditors released a report that revealed the university had scholarships without criteria and that staff had approved or renewed scholarships for which students may not have qualified or didn't have paperwork, President Tom Courtway moved scholarship duties away from officials who had said they fixed the problems.

The move is permanent, said spokeswoman Fredricka Sharkey in email Thursday.

On Tuesday afternoon, Courtway sent an email to UCA trustees saying Financial Aid will move under finance and administration. On Wednesday morning, Courtway met with at least one official in charge of scholarships — Robert Parrent, vice president for enrollment management, who oversaw some responsibility for renewing scholarships. The email message, sent late Tuesday afternoon, requested the meeting to "discuss scholarships."
