Apply for Scholarships

Helping Arkansas students find support to continue their education is one of the most important ways we can improve Arkansas communities. Most Community Foundation scholarships are for Arkansas students pursuing higher education at two/four-year colleges or universities, vocational schools or technical training programs.

Some scholarships are designated for graduates of a named high school or those who plan to attend a specific college. Others may be based on extracurricular activities or intended college majors.

Eligibility Quiz Opens January 2

Create an account and take an eligibility quiz to generate a list of scholarships for which you qualify. Once guided to the application portal, complete a separate application for each scholarship to which you wish to apply.

Each scholarship has its own deadline and criteria, but applications for most are accepted annually from February 1 to April 1.
