Posted: Updated:

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The University of Arkansas Honors College is awarding Bodenhamer Fellowships to six top incoming freshmen.

The $70,000 fellowship, one of the most prestigious undergraduate awards the university offers, provides financial support and aims to foster a sense of community among current and alumni fellows.

The 2014 fellows are James "Jay" Hudson from Lake Hamilton High School; Stephen Komar from Park Hill South High School in Riverside, Missouri; Naseer Naseem from Fayetteville High School; Kaylee Rauso from Hot Springs High School; Will Richardson from Little Rock Central High School and Madison "Maddie" Shaw from Conway High School.

The fellowships cover the normal costs of attending the university and may also be used for study abroad, attendance at professional and educational conferences, research and any special equipment that a fellow may need.
