Deadline Approaches for Scholarship Applications

Posted: Updated:

If you know a student who's applying for the Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarship this year, they need to know they have until June 1st to complete the application. 

More than 10,000 students have been notified of their scholarships this week, but thousands still await news.  The YOUniversal scholarship application can be accessed here.     

This year the legislature set new award rates for students; freshmen attending a 4 year college get $2,000, sophomores receive $3,000, juniors get $4,000 and seniors $5.000.  The scholarships are contingent on students meeting minimum grade requirements.

The Arkansas Scholar Lottery has generated about $170 million dollars for scholarships this year.
