The Arkansas Alumni Association Scholarship Programs have become a cornerstone of the association. In 1990 the association accepted the challenge to fund a merit scholarship - a scholarship that would reward the students for their accomplishments in the academic and leadership arena. The idea blossomed and grew into several different scholarships with the same central idea, to attract outstanding students to the University of Arkansas. The Arkansas Alumni Association, through its members, chapters and societies now sponsor five scholarships and grant programs.
