Institutional scholarships

The Academic Scholarship Program at UAPB is designed to recognize and reward students who have exemplified academic excellence. Scholarships awarded by the Office of Recruitment are for first time entering students who have not completed a bachelor’s degree program. Students may be awarded with the 6 semester transcript; however, final/official transcripts can nullify or lessen awards. Scholarship awards are based upon a number of criteria, including cumulative grade point average (4.0 scale), composite ACT scores and rank in graduating class. APPLICATION DEADLINE: March 1.
