Hannah Myers of Granbury was awarded the University of Arkansas Band Scholarship this fall from the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Arkansas.
This award was one of 960 scholarships totaling $1.6 million given to Fulbright College undergraduate and graduate students across four academic disciplines: arts, humanities, natural sciences and social sciences.
"We want to celebrate Hannah for their incredible achievement and reward their hard work," said Kathryn Sloan, interim dean of Fulbright College. "Hannah is an invaluable member of the Fulbright College family and the entire University of Arkansas community. We're so proud to support their learning and research successes."
This fall's scholarships are made possible from the support of donors, who include alumni, faculty, staff and friends of Fulbright College, and aid students as part of the college's commitment to student success.
"Supporting our students requires a holistic approach: academically, emotionally, mentally and financially," said Sloan. "The generous support of these friends of Fulbright College allows us to give our students those tools and resources for success, and we're so grateful for that opportunity."
Each year, Fulbright College awards more than $3 million in scholarships to its students to support their academic success, including scholarships for study abroad, honors studies, research fellowships and more. Learn more about scholarships at fulbright.uark.edu/scholarships.
