Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame Scholarship

Seniors and Parents,

Here is another scholarship opportunity!

In January, 2016, the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame (ASHOF) will award five $1,000 scholarships to Arkansas high school senior students who will be enrolling in an Arkansas college. These scholarships are available to both boys and girls who have been affected by sports. The criteria for eligibility and application instructions are attached below. The deadline for entries is December 31, 2015.

​Upcoming scholarship meetings:

  • January 8--during English class, we will be applying for the Arkansas Academic Challenge scholarship by filling out the YOUniversal application on the ADHE website.

  • January 27--during Religion class, I will be giving a presentation on the "Local Scholarships" available this year.

Let me know if you have any questions. Each senior has been given copy of "How to Pay for College: A Guide for Arkansas Students ​​2015-2016." I have extra copies if you need one.

Many Blessings,

Mrs. Breeding

Free Scholarship Searches

Christmas break is a great time to get on the internet and do some scholarship searches. Now, it is time consuming! There are a lot of good scholarships out there nationwide, but finding them can be a challenge.

Don't forget--scholarship searches should not cost you a dime. While doing a search, if at any time it asks you to pay a fee, do not go any further.
