UA-PTC High School Merit Scholarships

UA-PTC offers academic scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 annually based on a student’s academic success in his or her high school and college (if applicable). There is no separate application necessary for the UA-PTC Merit Based Scholarships. Students are considered for a scholarship upon completing an application for admission – this includes submitting all transcripts and test scores. Scholarships and awards vary depending on cumulative high school GPA and admission test scores of the ACT, Accuplacer, or SAT. UA-PTC uses “Super Scores” for the purpose of awarding these scholarships.  They are awarded for two semesters at a time for consecutive fall and spring semesters only and do not cover summer terms. Under Arkansas law, ACT 323, other financial aid received may reduce the value of the academic award. Institutional scholarships are not stackable and students may only receive one institutional scholarship per semester. All scholarships are awarded based on the availability of funds.

Eligibility: U.S. citizens who are graduating high school.
Application Process: These scholarships are awarded once a student is accepted for admission.
Renewable Criteria: Remain a full-time student with a 2.5 cumulative grade point average.
Maximum Award: Maximum four semesters or completion of an associate degree.
Priority Application Deadline: May 1
