UA Scholar Program

The UA Scholars Program is an $11,000 scholarship ($1,375 per semester for 8 semesters) awarded to the top ten percent of all graduating seniors from Alaska high schools.  This scholarship is valid at any University of Alaska campus for certificate and degree programs.

High schools designate Scholars at the end of their junior year based on academic standing. Scholars planning on attending UAS must submit an application for admission before May 1st of their senior year.  After May 1st, Scholars will not be eligible to use the award.

Scholars must begin using the scholarship within one year of high school graduation. This means the Scholar may take time off after graduation to work, travel or explore before enrolling at UAS. Once enrolled, each Scholar will receive $1,375 per semester for eight semesters, provided he or she remains in good academic standing.

UA Scholar Reception
