Anonymous quarter million dollar scholarship gift



The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) announced that it is the recipient of a donation of $ 250,000 to provide direct scholarships to students facing financial difficulties. The donation is the bequest of an anonymous donor who has expressed a desire to make a difference in the lives of the students.

According to UAPB Chancellor Laurence B. Alexander, notification of the award is timely, as more and more students choose UAPB. The university is experiencing a second consecutive fall semester of increased enrollment.

“It is with deep gratitude that UAPB accepts this gift and quickly begins to put these resources to work,” said Dr Alexander. “The need is great, and this gift will have a significant impact in the lives of our students, while recognizing the academic success of our students in the classroom. “

According to Vice Chancellor for Institutional Advancement George Cotton, Sr.

“UAPB students work extremely hard to focus on their educational journey,” Cotton said. “This gift will allow them to continue to focus without the added financial burden that too often accompanies a college education.”
