Show your support for UAMS, Arkansas' only comprehensive academic health center, with a special license plate! You can request the plate, featuring the UAMS logo and image of the campus, at any state revenue office. Purchasing the plate includes a $25 tax-deductible contribution to scholarships for UAMS students in its five colleges and graduate school.
The plate can be purchased at any time, whether or not it is time to renew a license but the expiration date will remain the same. This means the applicant must pay the special fees again at the regular renewal date.
Issuance of collegiate license plates is restricted to passenger cars, half-ton and three-quarter ton trucks and one-ton trucks used for private transportation. In addition to normal annual registration fees, which vary depending on the vehicle type, the annual fees for specialty plates include the $25 scholarship contribution and a $10 state

The plates are the
brainchild of a UAMS medical student, Diego Espinoza of Fayetteville, a
2014 graduate. As a second-year medical student in 2011, he
led the effort to create the new license plate. “I had seen specialty
plates for other universities and organizations in the state and was
surprised that UAMS didn’t have one,” he said. He pitched the idea to
students his first year at school with the help of a potential plate
design put together by his younger brother, Daniel. The project gained
steam after he ran it by College of Medicine and UAMS marketing
administrators, who worked with the state to create the new plate.
Espinoza, who has one of the plates himself, said he’s happy that
students, employees and Arkansans have a fun way to show their support
for UAMS. “That the license plate purchases will provide scholarship
funds is icing on the cake for me,” he said.
