Betty A. Matthews Women's Athletics Scholarship

The principal sum in this endowment fund and the income therefrom shall be held and used for the sole purpose of the award of a scholarship, and for no other purpose.

  • The recipient(s) of this scholarship must participate in women’s intercollegiate athletics at the University of Arkansas
    at Monticello.
  • The recipient(s) must be a full-time student of any major and classification, with a GPA of 3.0 or better.
    Preference will be given to a student from Arkansas.
  • The recipient(s) must have a strong academic background, a strong work ethic, good personality traits, and display
    excellent professional potential.
    This scholarship shall be awarded based on both merit and need.
  • The recipient(s) will be recommended by the UAM Athletic Director and the coaches of the women’s athletic teams. In the event that the University of Arkansas at Monticello ceases to participate in women’s athletics, it is agreed that the scholarship established herein shall be awarded to a woman who otherwise meets the criteria in item 2, above.

In this case, the recipient(s) will be chosen by the Scholarship Committee at the University of Arkansas at Monticello. The scholarship will pay toward the cost of tuition and fees for at least one recipient. If the income received in a fiscal year will support additional awards then they may be made. At the University’s discretion, any funds not awarded in a year may be added to the principal.

Mrs. Laura Matthews Wilson
