The state Department of Higher Education contacted the awarded students on Monday that they will be receiving lottery-funded Academic Challenge Scholarships for the students who exhibited excellent performance in school.
The Arkansas Legislature recently created a system to make sure awarded scholarships from exceeding revenues and as a way to keep the students working hard towards their graduation goals.
There are currently 6,000 incomplete applications for students who are eligible for the scholarships. These students have until June 1 to complete their applications for the Arkansas Academic Scholarship.
