The Alaska Performance Scholarship provides an opportunity for Alaska high school students to earn a scholarship to help cover the cost of an Alaska postsecondary education. Alaska high school students who take a more rigorous curriculum, get good grades, and score well on college placement or work ready exams, can earn an Alaska Performance Scholarship to qualified Alaska colleges, universities, or vocational/technical programs.

WHO can get the APS?

Alaska residents who graduate from an Alaska high school (public, private, or home school), in 2011 or later and meet the qualifying requirements are eligible for an APS award.

WHERE can the APS be used?

The APS can be used at any participating college or university in Alaska, or for approved career and technical education programs in the state. Click here for more information on participating Alaska postsecondary institutions.

HOW MUCH is the APS?

There are three maximum annual award levels: up to $4,755, $3,566, and $2,378. Maximum levels are established based on a combination of minimum GPA and test scores. An APS award may not exceed qualifying costs of attendance (which typically include tuition; fees; required books, supplies, and equipment; room and board; and transportation) remaining after considering all other non-loan aid the student is eligible for. Students may remain eligible for up to 8 semesters, but must fully use the APS within six years of high school graduation.

WHEN will the APS be available?

The APS is sent to schools in two payments, usually 50% of the award when the student begins attendance, and the other 50% at the start of the next term or midpoint of a CTE program. Generally, your school will first apply your APS funds to your outstanding school debt for that year, if any, and then pay any remaining funds to you. Final award notification is made after the postsecondary education confirms qualifying enrollment. Students can monitor their status in their Alaska Student Aid Portal (ASAP) account.

Does the scholarship expire?

Yes. It must be used within six years of graduating high school unless the recipient qualifies for an extension. Students who wish to apply for an extension must send a written request to the commissioner, accompanied by a signed statement from the institution of higher learning in which the student is enrolled. See 4 AAC 43.045 for more information on extending the scholarship eligibility period. Additional allowable extensions will be set in regulation by the State Board of Education and Early Development through a public policy.
