Spring 2020 Scholarship winners Savannah Hall, Austin Hudson, Breanna Lacy and Jessica Robinson.
The University of Arkansas Staff Senate is excited to announce the recipients of the spring 2020 Staff Senate Scholarships. This spring's recipients are Savannah Hall, Austin Hudson, Breanna Lacy and Jessica Robinson.
The Staff Senate Scholarship is intended to support campus staff in their continued undergrad and graduate education. This spring's recipients have been awarded a total of $250 each. The recipients were recognized and presented with certificates on Tuesday, Feb. 18, in the Union Ballroom.
About the Staff Senate Endowed Scholarship: The Staff Senate Scholarship was founded in 2000 with funds for one scholarship. The Staff Senate annually awards at least three need-based scholarships — the Rick A. Haley Memorial Scholarship, the Barbara G. Taylor Scholarship, and the Susan Imes Yell Scholarship. Thanks to support from the campus community, there have been more than 150 scholarships awarded to staff pursuing their education.
The scholarships were created to promote and encourage staff development through higher education in undergraduate and graduate studies. Applicants must be 100 percent appointed, full-time University of Arkansas staff employees for at least one year before the scholarship deadline and demonstrate financial need. Additional criteria are listed on the Staff Senate website.
The Staff Senate is an employee group on the University of Arkansas campus whose primary function is to work with university administrators to address staff concerns related to the quality of work life on campus. The Staff Senate represents nearly 3,600 employees on the Fayetteville campus.
