ADHE: Students fail to meet scholarship academic requirements in the second year

Approximately 40 percent of first-time traditional college freshmen who received funds from Arkansas Lottery scholarships were not academically eligible to receive the same funding their second year, according to the Associated Press.

Based on a report by the state Department of Higher Education, 59.5 percent of those students continued to receive their respective scholarships during the 2011-2012 school year. The students who weren’t eligible on average didn’t meet credit hour or GPA requirements, said Shane Broadway, interim director of the higher education department.
