Class Challenge

Reunion registration fees have been waived with the hope that our alumni will rise to the Class Challenge!

Scholarship is the single greatest tool we have to attract the best and brightest students to the School of Law. The class challenge is a friendly competition between classes to raise funds and to provide scholarships to qualified students who could not otherwise attend. Class totals will be tallied for “bragging rights” and each gift is tax deductible.

To give, please visit the link (coming soon) to contribute online. Or you may send a check made payable to the University of Arkansas School of Arkansas Foundation. Please write “Class Challenge class XXXX” in the memo for proper credit. Checks may be mailed to:
