Arabelle Laws Arrington ’41 Scholarship opportunity for children of faculty & staff – June 30 Deadline

Are you a student who is a child of a UMW employee inquiring to receive scholarship money? The Arabelle Laws Arrington Scholarship is a wonderful opportunity for UMW students who are the children of full-time faculty and staff who have been employed with UMW for at least 5 years within a teaching, administrative or classified position. Arabelle Arrington served as a member of the Board of Visitors from 1975-1983, was a member of the Alumni Association, and served as president of the Foundation Board of Directors. Mrs. Arrington left a generous fund from her estate, along with donations from alumni, parents, faculty, and staff of the University to fund this opportunity. This scholarship is a awarded annually.

 To be initially eligible for the benefit, the student must meet the University`s admissions requirements, must be accepted as a degree-seeking student, be a dependent student, be enrolled full-time (12 credit hours or more) and maintain good academic standing (cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better). Students must demonstrate financial need by completing a FAFSA (Free Application for Student Aid) yearly along with the Online Scholar Manager application. The award is renewable and can vary in amount each year based on the students’ financial need and eligibility for other financial aid awards.  The award could cover up to the total cost of in-state tuition and mandatory fees, however, room, board, books, and other college expenses or additional fees are not covered by this scholarship.  This scholarship does not apply to the enrollment of faculty or spouses of staff members, non-degree seeking students, part-time students (fewer than 12 credit hours), or summer session enrollment.

Funds for the 2017-2018 aid year will be fully committed June 30, 2017, and no adjustments will be made after July 1, 2017.
