All In for Arkansas is the university’s annual day of giving that supports students, academic programs and other initiatives across campus.


Campaign Arkansas is a comprehensive fundraising campaign focused on advancing academic opportunity at the University of Arkansas. Gifts to the campaign will help students from across Arkansas access higher education at the U of A and foster their success. The campaign will also build meaningful resources for teaching and research, grow innovative and collaborative programs and enhance facilities and technology. With a goal of raising $1.25 billion by June 30, 2020, Campaign Arkansas is poised to make a difference for our university and our state for years to come.

Advance Arkansas is a University of Arkansas scholarship initiative to create campus-wide scholarship endowments for new, returning and transfer students from Arkansas – particularly first-generation college students.
