FAYETTEVILLE — Bestselling author James Patterson has given more money for scholarships for education students at the University of Arkansas.

The university announced Wednesday that Patterson has created an additional eight teacher-education scholarships at UA. Last year, the author established the James Patterson Teacher Education Scholarship for eight incoming freshmen planning to major in elementary education.

The additional gift from Patterson raises the total for the forthcoming year to $96,000.

To be eligible, a student must be enrolled full-time in an education program in the College of Education and Health Professions with an expressed interest in elementary education, particularly reading and literacy.

Patterson's books have sold an estimated 300 million copies worldwide.
