FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas volleyball coach Robert Pulliza and his wife Jamie are establishing a non-athletic scholarship aimed at Hispanic students.

The Robert and Jamie Pulliza Opportunity Scholarship is a $1,500 renewable fund for students of Hispanic heritage in Benton and Washington counties.

"Jamie and I are extremely excited to be here in Fayetteville and to show our appreciation to our fans and our community, we wanted to establish this scholarship," Pulliza said.

Pulliza, a Puerto Rico native, is beginning his second year as Arkansas volleyball coach.

The scholarship is intended for non-athletes. An applicant must be a United States citizen or legal permanent resident.
