Fundraiser to Enhance Music Education in Alaska
In collaboration with Juneau Alaska Music Matters, the Office of Development has announced the creation of a new scholarship fund for Master of Arts in Teaching students, the UAS MAT-JAMM Scholarship Fund. A recent fundraiser garnered $1336.50 in contributions. The first “Strings for Scholarships All Cello Concert” was held Saturday, April 30 at the Egan Library. The purpose of the fund is to provide financial assistance for tuition and other related educational expenses to UAS students who are also string musicians and pursuing a Secondary Master of Arts in Teaching or a Secondary Graduate Certificate. Both programs result in certification to teach music in grades K-12.
