GENERAL INFORMATION

The Academic Challenge Program provides educational assistance to Arkansas residents in pursuit of a higher education. Additional funding made possible by the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery, has allowed the expansion of the Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarship to provide higher education opportunities to previously underserved Arkansans (both traditional & nontraditional students). The goal of the scholarship is to provide significant financial aid to those who qualify.

Eligibility requirements for the Academic Challenge Scholarship are based on two student categories: Traditional (Incoming Freshman) and Nontraditional Students.  Application deadline is June 1.
