As a measure of how important education is to DeRay Cole, he has created the DeRay Cole Family Award Scholarship Endowment Fund.  Please consider donating.

The endowment fund is used to provide scholarships for first-generation students who are rising freshmen, majoring in business at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff - DeRay Cole's alma mater.  Scholarship recipients are selected by a committee.  The committee is comprised of the Cole family members and university business faculty.  To apply for a scholarship, email DeRay Cole.  The committee will need a range of information from you should you seek a scholarship that will be provided once you contact Mr. Cole.  Some of the information you'll need to provide will include grade point averages, need and community involvement.


Donations are accepted. The DeRay Cole Family Endowment fund is administered by the University, a 501(c)(3) and donations are tax-deductible. UAPB, Office Of Alumni Affairs, 1200 N University Slot 4929, Pine Bluff, AR 71601
