Alumni Legacy Awards
Twenty students received financial aid through the Alumni Legacy Scholarship in the 2023-2024 academic year. This is the highest number of scholarships awarded in a year.
“At UAFS we always talk about being a Lion family, and nothing brings our family more pride than celebrating a new generation of Lions,” said Jasmine Smith, director of Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving. “We are proud to celebrate these Lion legacies starting their academic pursuits on the campus where their parents, grandparents, siblings, or spouses obtained their degrees.”
First-time entering students with an immediate family member who graduated from UAFS (or Westart College, Westark Community College, Westark Junior College, or Fort Smith Junior College) can apply for the scholarship of $1,000 per academic year. The Roarin’ on the River Low Country Shrimp Boil, held each year in June, is the largest fundraiser for the endowment fund.
