University of Alaska Scholars Program

Scholarship Sponsored by University of Alaska

Value: $12,000
Awards Available: 100

The University of Alaska established the UA Scholars Program (Award or Program) in 1999 to encourage Alaska students to attend and graduate from college in their home state. It is designed to provide an incentive for secondary school students to achieve academic excellence, to nourish efforts of schools to provide high quality education, and to encourage high school graduates from every Alaska community to seriously consider the opportunities that the University of Alaska has to offer.

How it Works

Annually, each qualified high school in Alaska identifies the top ten percent of their junior class to be recognized as UA Scholars. The UA Scholars Program verifies eligibility and notifies each designated Scholar about the Award offer. To use the Award, a Scholar must meet all of the requirements listed in this booklet (see Section (2)(A)).

Award Amount, Distribution and Deadline for Use

  1. Current Award amount: $12,000. The University of Alaska Board of Regents, at its discretion, may adjust the amount of the Award.
  2. How the Award is paid: Eligible Scholars receive $1,500 per semester for eight semesters. The Award will show as a payment on the Scholar’s student account at the University of Alaska.
  3. Deadline for Use: The Award will expire after a total of eight semesters or within five years of the Scholar’s designation as a UA Scholar.

A Scholar will forfeit any portion of the Award not used within this five-year period and any portion remaining if a Scholar fails to use the Award for more than two semesters.
