“We are very excited to have these scholars join Fulbright College,” said Todd Shields, dean of Fulbright College. “They are among the best and brightest students from across the state of Arkansas, and have already accomplished so much. We can’t wait to see what they’ll achieve next!”
The Sturgis Fellowship is the University of Arkansas' oldest and among its the most prestigious fellowship programs. It awards each fellow $72,000 over four years, covering tuition, room and board, and provides support for educational tools such as computer hardware and software, high-quality musical instruments, professional journals and participation at academic conferences. Sturgis Fellows must pursue a major within Fulbright College, complete an intensive academic program and graduate with honors. They are also encouraged to study abroad.
The fellowships are made possible by the continual support of the Roy and Christine Sturgis Charitable and Educational Trust.
