About

That 'students-first' philosophy is a big reason why the U of A is consistently ranked among the nation's top public research universities and best values. We work hard to ensure a low student-to-faculty ratio that promotes plenty of personal attention and mentoring opportunities. The Carnegie Foundation classifies the university as having "the highest possible level of research," placing us among the top 2 percent of colleges and universities nationwide.

Founded in 1871 as a land-grant institution, the University of Arkansas is the flagship of the University of Arkansas System. Our 27,000 students represent all 50 states and more than 120 countries. The U of A has 10 colleges and schools offering more than 210 academic programs. The University of Arkansas is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

        Funding

        There are a limited number of graduate assistantships for which you may be able to apply. Graduate Assistantships (GA's) are awarded by a department - the student works up to 20 hours per week for the department (in teaching positions, research, or other areas) in exchange for payment of tuition plus a living stipend paid directly to the student. Some assistantships are sufficient to cover all costs of attendance, and some cover only partial costs. 

        Each department administers its own assistantships, and they vary widely in availability and amount of funding, depending on each department's budget, teaching/research needs, pool of qualified applicants, etc. 

        Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
