The Division of Student Affairs touches the lives of every student at the University of Arkansas, no matter the major they study.

Student Affairs creates innovative programs that educate and inspire, support Arkansan, first generation, underrepresented, and veteran students, and contribute to their post-graduation success.

The Division awards more than 175 scholarships to students every year. This support helps them in many ways, from covering the cost of attendance, to supplementing a study abroad experience. By giving to one of our many scholarships you are helping students in a very tangible way, and you are also helping us carry out our Mission to “support the whole student by cultivating transformative experiences and environments that promote student well-being, sense of community, and success.”

Meal Plan Scholarship:


The Student Affairs Meal Plan Scholarship supports students by reducing their financial obstacles and food insecurity. A growing number of students experience significant unmet financial need, in part due to the rising costs of food, housing, and utilities. Providing scholarships to close their funding gap helps keep these students in school, focused on their studies and ultimately graduation.  


"Ending food insecurity and helping students succeed are always important to Richard and myself,” said John Berry, who provided the initial seed money for the Meal Plan Scholarship with his partner Richard Anderson. “As first-generation students, Richard and I know the real struggles that many students face; hunger should not be one of them.” 
These scholarships will provide students with campus meal plans and will be awarded on a rolling basis and in varying amounts to maximize the effectiveness of the scholarship and to help students afford the cost of attending the University of Arkansas.
