Hi, I was wondering my chances for receiving some good scholarship money from the University of Arkansas. I'm assuming my stats are sufficient for admission, and, because the scholarship information on their website is incredibly vague, I was wondering if someone here could shoot me a ballpark figure or at least describe some of their scholarships and the requirements to get them in greater detail.
I'm a white male from OOS (Tennessee) and will be a senior in a public school this upcoming year. From what I can ascertain, Arkansas' Latin American Studies program appears to be a secondary major(?) And I'm looking to major in Latin American Studies, but I suppose I could pair it with international relations, political science, Spanish, etc. Family income is around $80,000 if that matters.
By the time I graduate:
Will have taken 5 AP classes (Eng Lang, Eng Lit, Biology, USH, US Gov) and 11 honors classes (including 4 years of honors Spanish).
Pep Club- 9th, 10th
Beta Club- 11th, 12th
NHS- 11th, 12th
DECA- 11th (won metro competition in category)
Spanish NHS- 12th (will actually start it myself)
Won several state and city-wide essay contests
100+ hours volunteering at children's hospitals
100+ hours at District Attorney's office
50+ hours at drug rehab center
25+ hours at local state park
Hopefully I will get an internship at a local Latino organization, but I don't know yet.
Also will have held a part-time job for 14 months at a fast-food restaurant.
What worries me, however, is that the school seems more geared toward math and science. Can anyone attest to the quality of the departments I am considering? Thank you in advance; any help is greatly appreciated!
