FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Arkansas is accepting scholarship applications for the 2014-15 academic year. Scholarship applications and descriptions are available on the college’s website.

The college manages the application process for several general college scholarships as well as the J. W. and Elizabeth W. Fulbright Endowed Scholarship for Study Abroad.

“We hope students will explore the many scholarships offered by Fulbright College,” said Todd Shields, interim dean. “There are many opportunities for both need-based and merit-based funding, and I encourage students to explore options that suit their needs and interests.”

Applicants for general college scholarships must apply online using the scholarship application form. The application process will close at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, March 15, when the online application will no longer be available. Applications will be evaluated after the applicants are matched with the scholarships for which they are eligible.

Applications for the Fulbright Scholarship for Study Abroad may be downloaded from the scholarship page. Application materials may be submitted to the Dean’s Office in room 525 of Old Main or mailed to the address provided on the application. The application form and all accompanying materials must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31.

Other scholarships include those offered by individual academic departments, programs and centers as well as the Fulbright Honors Program. These may also be found via links on the college’s scholarships and fellowships page.  

The applicant selected for the Fulbright Scholarship for Study Abroad will be notified in March, and applicants selected for the general college scholarships will be contacted in April. The Dean’s Office Scholarship Committee, comprised of the college’s associate deans, will make the final selections.
