Current and prospective UA Cossatot students can apply for scholarships and grants for the 2020-2021 academic year by completing online applications. All federal, state and local scholarships and grants are now available to view and complete.
Students can apply for UA Cossatot Foundation scholarships that are available now through April 1. This opportunity will allow applicants the chance to apply and have access to a variety of local awards for the next academic year.
Some scholarships are semester specific. The overview and qualifications can vary, but all can be viewed at https://cccua.awardspring.com/. Students can also complete the online scholarship application to be eligible to receive a UA Cossatot Foundation scholarship on this webpage.
State scholarships and grants can also be viewed at the Arkansas Department of Higher Education (ADHE) website, https://scholarships.adhe.edu/. General information about each financial aid opportunity will be listed, including deadlines, requirements, and award amounts.
The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application is open for the 20-21 academic year and can be viewed at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa.
Completing the FAFSA will allow the government to determine if a student is eligible for federal financial aid. UA Cossatot’s Financial Aid department encourages all UA Cossatot students to complete the FAFSA.
During this fall semester, Financial Aid employees at the college will also be hosting FAFSA Fridays to give students the opportunity to complete the FAFSA with a Financial Aid Specialist. FASFA Fridays will take place at the De Queen, Nashville, and Ashdown Campuses from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 18, Oct. 25, Nov. 8, Nov. 22, and Dec. 13.
