Summer Programs Planned for Kids of All Ages at ASUMH

Summer programs for kids of all ages are planned at Arkansas State University-Mountain Home (ASUMH).  Three different camps are available for varying ages and interests beginning July 10.  The three include:

At Camp Invention, students are presented with fun, hands-on challenges that encourage creative problem solving, teamwork, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Inspired by inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, this summer’s all-new curriculum allows children to create their own personal, ultimate spy gadget alarm box, launch water rockets, build bubble blasters and engineer giant castles. Children will explore a distant new exoplanet and design inventions to create the next earth. They will also design duct tape products and pitch them to mock investors.

The cost for Camp Invention is $225. Register at campinvention.org or call 800-968-4332.

Arkansas Department of Higher Education Opens ArFuture

AR Future

LITTLE ROCK, AR – The Arkansas Department of Higher Education has announced the launch of the Arkansas Future (ArFuture) scholarship program application.

ArFuture was created through legislation in the 2017 general session. This program was created to promote higher education, increase the skills and education of Arkansas’ workforce, and attract students to high-demand, high-wage occupations. This scholarship will cover tuition and fees for eligible students in qualifying Associate’s and Certificate programs at public higher education institutions.

“I am pleased to hear that the ArFuture grant application process is now officially open,” said Governor Asa Hutchinson. “The ArFuture grant will increase our degree and certificate attainment rates by removing the financial hurdles that keep many from enrolling. Increasing access to education and creating a more skilled workforce is the best way to strengthen economic development and increase opportunities for all Arkansans.”

The scholarship is open to every person who has graduated from an Arkansas high school, Arkansas homeschool, GED program, or anyone who has a high school diploma and has lived in Arkansas for the last three years. Students must enroll in a high-demand or STEM program and cannot have earned a bachelor’s degree. Students must also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and apply through ADHE’s online YOUniversal scholarship portal.

“The great thing about ArFuture,” said Dr. Maria Markham, ADHE Director, “is
that it is available to both part-time and full-time students. Also, students directly out of
high school and Arkansans who have been out of school for years can qualify.”
The scholarship program has mentoring and community service requirements.
Research shows a greater chance of success if students are engaged in their
professional fields and communities.

ArFuture will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis and the application
period has been extended until July 1. Deadlines for other programs, such as the
Arkansas Challenge Scholarship, have been extended until June 15. For more information, contact the office of Financial Aid at ASUMH by calling (870) 508-6195 or stopping by the 3rd floor of Roller Hall.
