Scholarship Information

Dear Seniors,

Each year, the Alma Education and Arts Foundation awards scholarships to worthy candidates who wish to pursue educational opportunities beyond high school. These scholarships are both need and merit-based. It is important for you to know that the scholarships are made available for all areas of academic study; they are not limited to arts-related degrees. The scholarships may also be applied toward technical and trade vocational education offered in programs in addition to traditional college and university settings.

Some scholarships are available from designated family memorials, private gifts, and grants.

The process for applying for these funds begins by completing the online application form. 

If you have any questions, please contact me at (479)632-2129 – cking@almasd.net or Tawnya Shelton at (479) 632-2162 – tshelton@almasd.net.

 Again, congratulations and best wishes for your future endeavors.  

Sincerely,

Chuck King, Executive Director 

Alma Education and Arts Foundation
