About Our Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the College of Education and Health Professions offers several scholarship opportunities. These gifts allow us to support the university's mission of recruiting and retaining high-achieving students who enrich and diversify the academic environment. Scholarships are available for both current and incoming students.

Each scholarship has specific criteria based on the donor's wishes; however, the selection process is coordinated by the College of Education and Health Professions Scholarship Review and Selection Committees. Examples of criteria include academic merit, financial need, department or major, special interests, organizational involvement, and classification. The college awards several undergraduate and graduate scholarships each year. Because most COEHP scholarships are one-year awards, all current and prospective students are encouraged to apply each year.

 

How to Apply

The University of Arkansas uses an online system called AcademicWorks to administer scholarship applications for students. All components of the scholarship application will be submitted online unless specifically noted. An essay, academic resume, and letter of recommendation will be required.  The scholarship cycle begins on January 1st each year.  Information about the next scholarship application cycle will be available in late fall.

After the application period ends, complete applications are reviewed by the College of Education and Health Professions Scholarship Review and Selection Committees. Committee recommendations are provided to the COEHP Scholarship Office prior to the end of the spring semester in most cases. Once the final selections have been made, recipients should receive an offer email from the AcademicWorks system. The notification email will prompt students to log in and view the in-system offer, which includes details about the specific opportunity and acceptance requirements. Awards are contingent on continued full-time enrollment in the same degree program, confirmation of financial need if applicable (determined by FAFSA), and compliance with any other requirements outlined in the offer notification. It is the responsibility of scholarship recipients to understand the awarding criteria and to maintain eligibility in the upcoming academic year.

Scholarship availability in the College of Education and Health Professions depends on several factors and can vary from year to year.  We do not publish a list of available scholarships or award amounts for this reason. Applicants will be able to review criteria and other scholarship details in the AcademicWorks system when the application cycle begins each year.
