WASHINGTON ––Arkansas Senators John Boozman and Tom Cotton, along with Fourth District Congressman Bruce Westerman, today announced a $1.4 million grant for the  University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) to develop and strengthen partnerships for higher quality education services to children. 

“Providing young Arkansans with a learning environment to help improve their education is important to educational success. Fostering education at a young age is important to their future success in the classroom,” Boozman said. 

“Education in the early years of a child’s life is important to putting them on the path to success, both in school and for the rest of their lives. I am pleased UAPB will continue to play an important role for so many young Arkansans,” Cotton said.  

"A solid education is essential to success in an increasingly competitive job market. Congratulations to UAPB and the children of Jefferson County," Westerman said.
