The University of Arkansas at Monticello will provide a $500 scholarship for the fall semester as a supplement to the Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarship, according to Mary Whiting, director of admissions. 

The $500 scholarship will be available to each incoming freshman who has graduated from an Arkansas high school in 2013 and is a recipient of the Academic Challenge Scholarship. The student must be enrolled in a four-year academic program and the scholarship must be used for tuition, mandatory fees, room, board or books purchased in the campus bookstore and is not refundable.

The scholarship may be renewed for an additional $500 for the spring semester by passing a minimum of 12 academic hours with a 3.00 grade point average in the fall term.

This is a one-time scholarship opportunity for the 2013-14 academic year. For information, contact the Office of Admissions at (800) 844-1826.
