Applications for the UAM-Arkansas Americorps Scholarship will be available beginning February 1 at the Office of Admissions at the University of Arkansas at Monticello and at the Americorps office at the Southeast Educational Service Cooperative in Monticello.

UAM, in cooperation with Arkansas Americorps, will offer five $1,000 scholarships, renewable each semester, beginning with the fall 2013 semester. The deadline to submit a scholarship application is April 1.

UAM and Arkansas Americorps reached a memorandum of agreement two years ago to create five scholarships, which were awarded during the 2011 fall semester. An additional five scholarships were given during the 2012 fall term. The new scholarships will be awarded in addition to those already awarded.
