Institutional and Private Scholarships

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.
