The scholarship application period has ended.

Dear Seniors,

Congratulations to the Graduating Class of 2022. Your teachers and administrators join your family with pride in the accomplishments you have achieved as a student here in the Alma School District.

Each year, the Alma Education and Arts Foundation awards scholarships to worthy candidates who wish to pursue educational opportunities beyond high school. These scholarships are both need and merit-based. It is important for you to know that the scholarships are made available for all areas of academic study; they are not limited to arts-related degrees. The scholarships may also be applied toward technical and trade vocational education offered in programs in addition to traditional college and university settings.

Some scholarships are available from designated family memorials, private gifts, and grants.

The process for applying for these funds begins by completing the online application form. 

The scholarship application opens on MARCH 10 and closes on APRIL 10. Applications will not be accepted after this date.

If you have any questions, please contact me at (479)632-2129 – cking@almasd.net or Tawnya Shelton at (479) 632-2162 – tshelton@almasd.net.

 Again, congratulations and best wishes for your future endeavors.  

Sincerely,

Chuck King, Executive Director
