CONWAY, Ark. (December 8, 2014) – Arkansas high school
students will now have 100 percent of their financial need covered to attend Hendrix
College, thanks to the Hendrix Arkansas Advantage. The new program is now
available for Arkansas high school seniors enrolling at Hendrix in the fall
“Hendrix has always been a place for Arkansas students to have
a world-class liberal arts experience in their home state, and we always should
be,” said Hendrix President Bill Tsutsui. “We should never, ever, be out of
reach for Arkansas students.”
The Hendrix Arkansas Advantage is for Arkansas high school
seniors who have a 3.6 or higher GPA and who have a 27 ACT or above or 1200 SAT
(Critical Reading + Math) or above. The program will meet students’ demonstrated
financial need through all forms of financial assistance, including merit
scholarships, need-based grants, federal and state grants, federal student loans
and student employment.
“We know that cost is a critical issue for students
choosing a college, and many students and families assume that a private
college is prohibitively expensive,” Tsutsui said. “But when you consider the financial
aid we offer and our four-year graduation rate, Hendrix is a very good
investment for Arkansas students and families. And the Hendrix Arkansas
Advantage is the best investment we can make in those students and in our
