Go All In To Advance Arkansas!
Spotlight on Arkansas
Advance Arkansas is a brand new scholarship program initiated by Chancellor Steinmetz to help qualified Arkansans attend the University of Arkansas.
Advance Arkansas Scholarships will support new, returning, and transfer students from Arkansas who exhibit some financial need and record of academic success, coupled with civic engagement, or community leadership. Recipients must also show a deep sense of connection to the region and state, in addition to a strong desire to graduate from the University of Arkansas. Preference will be given to students from the natural state who make the natural choice of Arkansas, and to those who are the first in their families to pursue a four-year degree.
Importantly, Advance Arkansas Scholarships are portable, so no matter what area of study students choose in their academic careers, the scholarship will advance with them as long as they make satisfactory progress toward their degree.
Increasing the Impact
Chancellor Joe Steinmetz and his wife, Sandy Steinmetz, are kicking off the initiative by personally establishing the very first Advance Arkansas Scholarship fund during All in for Arkansas. Right now, they are encouraging all alumni and friends to consider a contribution of any size to support even more talented students through this new scholarship program.
The icing on the cake? When you go All in for Advance Arkansas, the impact of your gift will be doubled by a special dollar-for-dollar match, up to $5,000!
If you are interested in setting up your very own Advance Arkansas endowed scholarship, we can do that too! Call Ben Carter at 479-575-4663 to find out the details.
