Numerous Scholarships Help Students Attend University Wealth isn't necessary to get a* university education, even in these days of rising costs. The old success story of the poor boy becom Ing a college president can still come true. To help deserving students, the University of Arkansas has available a number of scholanhipl which range in value from $100 for the freshman year to $2,000 for four years. In addition, the University has several loan funds used to help students complete their education, provided they have been doing satisfactory academic work.

Thirty-six students will enter the University next month on such scholarships. The scholarships are of different types. Some are general scholarships, permitting students to study anything they wish; others arc for students taking specific subjects like agriculture, business administration, science, law, music, or science.
