MELBOURNE, Ark. (AP) - Ozarka College is offering a new scholarship opportunity to adult education students.

The GED Walmart Scholarship will cover official GED testing fees if the student meets the required criteria.

The only criteria for the scholarship is that the candidate be an adult education student, an Arkansas resident and not earn more than 200 percent of the federal poverty level income. A student who has only one person in the family can make as much as $23,340 a year.

Students are encouraged to complete the scholarship application through Ozarka College Adult Education. A signature from a certified adult education instructor is required prior to submission.

Students who are awarded the scholarship may take the GED test free of charge at Ozarka College in Melbourne, Ash Flat, Mammoth Spring and Mountain View.
