Arkansas Tech University has received a $3,500 Ask Every Student implementation grant for the fall 2024 semester.

The funds will provide employment opportunities for ATU students who wish to serve as student voter advocates. Those selected for the positions will encourage students to register to vote and to vote during the November 2024 election.

The grant application was written and submitted by Megan Bell, ATU coordinator of civic and community engagement and leadership development in the ATU Department of Campus Life.

According to its website, the non-partisan Ask Every Student program is based on the notion that “full student voter participation comes down to accessing at least three minutes of individualized focus from each student to talk about voter engagement and, if eligible, register them to vote.”

Arkansas Tech has been involved with Ask Every Student since 2020. That is when Arkansas Tech became the only institution in Arkansas and one of just 31 universities in the nation that was selected as a Ask Every Student co-designer campus.

Other institutions named Ask Every Student co-designer campuses in 2020 included Harvard University, the University of Michigan, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Texas-Austin.
