We are so grateful to you, our donors! The Miss Arkansas Scholarship Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3), is the sole fundraising entity for the Miss Arkansas Scholarship Competition.


Thanks to generous donors, the Competition has maintained a tradition of empowering young women to achieve their personal and professional goals while providing a forum to express their opinions, talents, and intelligence.

In 2023 scholarships totaling more than $227,000 were awarded to Miss Arkansas and Miss Arkansas' Teen candidates - with each of the 92 contestants receiving a scholarship for participating.  


Our 2024 goal is to award $300,000 to the candidates in 2024, and we invite you to help fund these important scholarships. Following are three ways to donate:

Casino Party 2024 – Saturday, June 8, 2024

This is our primary fundraiser and a fun-filled casino style night, with games, prizes, DJ, snacks and cash bar. Last year, more than 300 attended this event!

Join The Crown Club
New this year, the Miss Arkansas Crown Club has been created to help build general scholarship funding. Last year, each of the 92 candidates who competed received at least one scholarship. 100% of your gift will fund scholarships.  Click here to learn more about the Crown Club benefits. 


Fund an Existing Scholarship
There are many existing scholarship opportunities to fund for both Miss Arkansas’ Teen and Miss Arkansas candidates. These range from $500-$30,000.

By donating you will directly impact young women across the state of Arkansas, enabling them to achieve their academic goals. Thanks to you and other generous donors, the Miss Arkansas system is one of the top scholarship providers for women in the Miss America Competition.


You will empower young Arkansas women with educational opportunities to become our leaders of tomorrow. Join us in helping reach the 2024 scholarship goal
