Scholarships and Financial Aid

We understand that paying for college can be a stressful topic. All incoming and current agricultural education, communication and technology students should complete the University of Arkansas general scholarship application and the Bumpers College general application. The scholarship application cycle opens Jan. 1 and closes Feb. 15 of every year. Please visit the Bumpers College Scholarship page to learn more about the application process. 

Every year the Department of Agricultural Education, Communications and Technology awards approximately $32,000 to our students. See our departmental scholarships below:
