Arkansas students pursuing higher education at two- or four-year colleges or universities, vocational schools, or technical training programs can apply for many private scholarships.

Funding for these scholarships comes from families, businesses and individuals who want to support higher education and invest in local students. Theses donors determine the size and eligibility criteria for the scholarships they create, and the Foundation manages the scholarship process on their behalf.

To find out who can benefit from these scholarships, take our eligibility quiz.

The online application process begins Feb. 1 and most deadlines are April 1. Be sure to double-check the deadline. Good luck!
