These need-based scholarships are available to undergraduate students at the University of Arkansas and are supported by all members of the Arkansas Alumni Association. Beginning in January 2009, a portion of every membership is deposited into a special scholarship account for these awards. To qualify, current students must have a 2.75 cumulative gpa and be enrolled full-time. Additionally, applicants must have a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with the University of Arkansas. Preference will be given to students with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of less than $7,000 per year.  Since 2009, the Membership Scholarship program has awarded 76 need-based scholarships totaling more than $172,000.
