The Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame (ASHOF) will award four $1,000 scholarships to Arkansas high school senior students who will be enrolling in an Arkansas college. These scholarships will be awarded to current high school seniors – both boys and girls are eligible – and all scholarship funds will be paid directly to the college that each student will be attending. A distinguished panel of ASHOF Board members, some of whom are also ASHOF Inductees, will screen all essays, and all scholarship winners will be notified as soon as possible after the scholarship deadline has passed. All decisions of the ASHOF will be final.
