The Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences is continuing its student experience opportunities for current students with a scholarship support service this week.

The Student Services Office at Bumpers College hosts a support session with walk-in office hours from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesdays. The session will take place in the AFLS E-202 building.

The Helpdesk is intended to help current Bumpers College students connect, engage, and learn about available funding opportunities. Welcome hours are open to all college majors, including students in the School of Environmental Humanities.

Walk-in tours allow students to ask one-on-one questions about the application process, debunk any misinformation about scholarship myths, and get their questions answered in real time.

Common questions from students are: What is an academic resume? What are the tips to add / avoid for a quality submission? What is the FAFSA? How to apply for departmental scholarships? What is the minimum average?

The scholarship application deadline for 2022-23 is February 15. Students are encouraged to consult the scholarship page before the forum.

The sessions will be moderated by Becky Alversen, Project Specialist for Grants, Development and External Relations.
