MHS Grad Chosen as Honors College Fellow at UAJuly 11th, 2012 by Submitted
Amy James, a recent graduate of Monticello High School, is one of 72 outstanding students chosen for the 2012 class of Honors College Fellows at the University of Arkansas. James plans to be a pre-med major in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences.
The Honors College Fellowship provides $50,000 over four years to cover tuition, room and board, books and purchase of a computer. The fellowship can also be combined with other scholarships and grants.
The fellowship is highly competitive: more than 500 high school students from across the country applied this year. To qualify students must score at least 32 on the ACT exam and have a 3.8 grade point average. The rigor of applicants’ high school course work, their letters of recommendation and community involvement are also considered.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the historic $300 million gift from the Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation, a portion of which funded the Honors College and its generous scholarship program.
