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 to the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff who have not completed a bachelor’s degree program. Incoming freshmen may be offered a scholarship based on their 6 semester transcript; however, final/official transcripts are required for award and may change the award level. Scholarship awards are based upon cumulative grade point average (4.0 scale), composite ACT/SAT scores and rank in graduating class. You may qualify for other scholarships beyond the first year at UAPB. Contact your academic department, the Office of Enrollment Management, or the Office of Institutional Advancement.
