Fulbright College Scholarship Application Process Begins for 2021-22 Academic Year

University Relations

The Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Arkansas is accepting scholarship applications for the 2021-22 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.

"There are so many wonderful scholarship opportunities for both need-based and merit-based funding, and I encourage our students to explore the options that best suit their needs and interests," said Dean Todd Shields. "Now more than ever, we want our students connecting to these scholarships, so they have access to as much financial support as possible."

Applicants for general college scholarships must apply online using the scholarship application.

The application process will close at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 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 J.W. and Elizabeth W. Fulbright Endowed Scholarship for Study Abroad may also be filled out online. The application form and all accompanying materials must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 1.

Other available 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 applicants selected for the J.W. and Elizabeth W. Fulbright Endowed Scholarship for Study Abroad will be notified in March, and applicants selected for the general college scholarships will be contacted in April.
