Our Opportunities

Welcome to Lion’s Share!

Please note that these scholarships are managed by the UAFS Foundation and are separate from those offered by the UAFS Office of Financial Aid (Prestigious, Merit, Transfer, Arkansas Scholar, Non-Traditional, & International scholarships). Students are encouraged to search and apply for scholarships from both sources.

  • The application process for the 2020-21 academic year begins Friday, November 1, 2019.
  • The priority deadline is Sunday, December 1, 2019.
    – Students may apply after the Dec. 1 deadline, but they will not receive first consideration.
    – Graduate student awards do not follow this timeline.

You will be directed to fill out one General Application (see complete instructions below). After you have completed your General Application, the system will automatically match you to ALL scholarships you are eligible for based on the information you provided in your application and your UAFS academic record. Matching does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship, and you will not receive a list of scholarships that you are automatically matched to. Lion’s Share may also recommend scholarships that will require you to answer supplemental questions. To be considered for these additional scholarships, you must complete and submit your general application first. You can save your application at any time by clicking “Save and Keep Editing” at the bottom of the form. Once completed, you can submit your application by clicking “Finish and Continue”. Required fields are marked with an asterisk.

Get started on your scholarship search now:

1. Sign on the system with your My.UAFS User Login (not your email) and password (Sign on button is at the top right of this screen).

2. Review your personal data under “Applicant Record” on the left hand side. If anything information is incorrect, please email foundation.scholarships@uafs.edu.

3. Complete the General Application under “Profile Information”.

4. Click on Opportunities/Recommended to see if there any other scholarships the system recommends you to apply to. This will appear over the green arrow and a “Start
Applying” message.

5. After you complete the application(s), you’re done! The status of your application(s) should show “Submitted”.

A complete list of the scholarships that the Foundation has available is below. You can see the details of each scholarship by clicking on the name of the scholarship. There is also a search function that allows you to search by key word (either in the name or the text). You may directly apply to those scholarships that have an “Apply” button beside them, however, if these do not appear in your Recommended Opportunities list, you may not qualify for them.
