Alaska EPSCoR is a vibrant part of the University of Alaska community, and many of its outreach efforts are targeted at students and faculty across UA's main and rural campuses. These include:
TRIO. Through the federal TRIO program, EPSCoR pays for GRE exams for UA students from underserved populations seeking to attend graduate school.
AAAS. EPSCOR provides travel support for UA students to attend the annual American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Arctic Science Conference.
WAISC. EPSCoR also provides travel support for UA students and faculty to attend the Western Alaska Interdisciplinary Science Conference (WAISC), an annual event held in rotating Western Alaska communities. EPSCoR has provided travel funding for all five WAISCs, held in Dillingham in 2008 and 2012, Nome in 2009, Unalaska in 2010, and Bethel in 2011.
Association of Women in Science. Alaska EPSCoR supports the Alaska chapter of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS-AK) by funding the luncheon speaker at the annual AAAS Arctic Science Conference, by providing small prizes to female winners at Alaska science fairs, and by supporting an Alaskan AWIS member to attend the organization's national conference each year.
Internships. Alaska EPSCoR is supporting summer internships for students in the UA Resilience and Adaptation Program (RAP) as well as a new series of internships for UA students at Alaska Native Corporations.
Seminars. EPSCoR holds at least four seminars on adaptation-related topics each year in conjunction with RAP.
