University of Arkansas Rich Mountain is preparing for the 2017 Fall Semester and looks forward to providing resources to their students, who will now enjoy having the UA name on their future diplomas. Fall registration will run from July 31st until August 3rd, with the first day of classes being held on August 21st.
To help with UARM student success, the UARM Foundation partners with the college to provide additional resources to students. “The mission is to partner with the private sector to provide scholarships and special projects to the campus,” explained Tammy Young, UARM Director of Development and Community Relations.
Young added that some scholarships are major specific, such as art, journalism, music, media, medical field, communications, teaching, agriculture, EMT, nursing, business, some related to being a Rich Mtn. Electric Coop member, veterans or spouses and children of veterans, and many, many more.
Criteria for the scholarships include: academic performance, grade point average, and financial need. Deadline for Fall scholarships is July 30th. To learn more, visit UARM, or call them at 479-3947622.
As a reminder, Young stated, “As people think about giving back to help the students, the Foundation and their scholarships are a great way to do that.”
