Students interested in receiving financial aid assistance for the 2020-2021 academic year still have time to apply for three state scholarships. These three scholarships include the Academic Challenge Scholarship, the Arkansas Future Grant Scholarship, and the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship.

The Academic Challenge Scholarship is open until Aug. 1, 2020. This scholarship is a grant that applies to students regardless of their academic status, whether just graduating from high school, currently enrolled in college, enrolling in college for the first time, or re-enrolling after a period of time out of college.

The deadline for the Arkansas Future (ArFuture) Grant Scholarship is also Aug. 1. This grant aims to increase the education and skills of Arkansas’s workforce in an affordable manner. The grant applies to students enrolled in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), or regional high demand areas of study.

Students who are single parents can apply for the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship, which is open until Sept. 15 for the fall 2020 semester. Students can also apply for this scholarship opportunity now to be used for the spring 2021 semester. The deadline to apply for the spring semester is Jan. 15, 2021.
