Tiger Network Leadership Award Program

The Tiger Network Leadership Award Program is a special project of the Ouachita Alumni Relations Office designed to reward and encourage growth in excellent student leaders choosing to attend Ouachita. Award recipients will participate in leadership activities including service opportunities, seminars and networking events with university administration, community leaders and campus student leaders. In addition, recipients will receive a $1,000 scholarship.*

To be considered for the award, applicants must meet Ouachita’s minimum requirements for unconditional admission: 2.75/4.0 high school GPA and scores of ACT 20/SAT 1020. The number of awards presented each year varies based on funds available. Awards are funded in part by the Ouachita license plate program. All applicants must be nominated by a Ouachita graduate or former student. Applicants can submit up to two alumni recommendations; alumni/former students can submit recommendations for up to four applicants. An alumnus cannot recommend an immediate family member (child or sibling).

*$500 will be awarded for the student's first semester and $500 will be added for the Spring semester if recipients attend the events required in the fall.

Applications for students entering Ouachita in the Fall of 2020 are due by 5:00 p.m., December 1, 2019. The selection committee will review applications, and recipients will be notified in January. Applying for this award does not substitute for the regular scholarship application process.
