MONTICELLO, AR — The University of Arkansas at Monticello is once again offering scholarships to two high school seniors who have participated in the EAST educational technology initiative for at least two years while in high school.

The scholarship covers tuition for 15 semester hours of course credit, excluding summer terms, and is renewable by maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better on 12 semester hours and providing 10 hours per week of voluntary assistance in an assigned location on campus.

Scholarship applicants must have a composite score of 19 on the ACT as well as scores of 19 in both math and English, a minimum high school grade point average of 3.0 or better, and two letters of reference regarding EAST service and performance. Applications should be submitted by the priority deadline of April 1 for first consideration. Eight students have been awarded the EAST scholarship since it was first announced in 2008.

The EAST program is offered through a number of school systems in Arkansas and nationwide. EAST students perform service learning projects, identify needs in their communities, and work to provide innovative solutions for those needs.

Applications for the scholarship will be available on this website, in high school counseling offices, and in the UAM Office of Admissions beginning January 25, 2014.
