The following are some of the student aid programs offered by the federal government:
The state of Arkansas makes financial aid awards to eligible Arkansas residents through the Arkansas Department of Higher Education (ADHE). ADHE administers financial aid programs such as the Arkansas Academic Challenge scholarship and Higher Education Opportunities Grant – GO Grant! Visit www.adhe.edu for information on additional programs and for application guidelines and deadline dates.
The University offers various scholarships based on specific academic standards, specific talents, interests and other specific criteria. The Office of Recruitment is the point of contact for new students inquiring about scholarships. Once a student enrolls at the university scholarship opportunities may be available in the department of the student’s area of study. Click here to view a list of Scholarships. Financial aid staff must be notified of any private scholarships a student is expected to receive so that it can be considered in the total financial aid package.
Most institutional scholarships require full time enrollment and pay for specified charges such as tuition. These scholarships are not refundable to the student if the full award is not used.
Awards received from public funds, such as UAPB scholarships and other Arkansas state financial aid programs, are subject to the Arkansas State Stacking Policy. The policy disallows total financial aid awarded, including awards and resources from outside organizations, to exceed the budget amount referenced in the award letter. Pell grants are excluded from this policy.
