Join This Team

The University of Arkansas - Fort Smith Alumni Advisory Council established the Alumni Legacy Scholarship in 2015 to encourage children, siblings, and spouses of University of Arkansas - Fort Smith, Fort Smith Junior College, and Westark alumni to attend their families' alma mater and perpetuate the UAFS legacy.  

About Our Scholarship

Since 2015, we have awarded 11 students a $1,000 scholarship, but turn away many each year. It is our goal to never say no to a student. This year we plan on awarding 4 students our scholarship. We appreciate any donations to help grow our lion family.

Rick Goins, our director of Alumni Affairs says "We’re proud we’ve be able to award $11,000 in scholarships to 11 deserving students over the last 6 years, but saddened we were unable to do so for over 170 others due to lack of funds. Our dream, which we are asking you to support, is to grow our endowment to the point we can say yes to every legacy student who applies."

Who is an Alum?

We consider anyone who passed 14 hours of credit at FSJC or Westark or anyone completed a certificate, associate degree or bachelor’s degree at UAFS an alum.

Can Students still Apply for this Scholarship?

Yes! Students can apply for our scholarship through June 1, 2021. Please contact us for more information at [email protected]
