If you meet certain academic criteria or other specific requirements you may qualify for one or more of the great scholarships available at Ozarks. Unlike federal grants, scholarships are usually based on criteria other than family income, although income may be a consideration when determining the total dollar amount of some scholarships.

Scholarships available for students at Ozarks fall into one of three broad categories:

  1. Scholarships provided by the state of Arkansas
  2. Scholarships offered by University of the Ozarks

If you're currently on active duty or if you're a veteran, you may be entitled to benefits based on your service. The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for education and a housing allowance to qualifying individuals.

How do I apply for a scholarship?

  1. Apply for Admission. Apply online
  2. Ask your high school counselor to send us an official copy of your transcript (with your ACT and/or SAT scores if possible).
  3. If you haven't taken the ACT or SAT, sign up to take the exam and have your scores sent to University of the Ozarks.

Once we have received these documents, we'll be able to determine which scholarships you may be eligible for.  It's as simple as that.
