Applying for Scholarships

Since most scholarships are awarded early in the spring of each academic year, applications must be received by February 15th, to be considered for most scholarships. Any applications received through July 15, will be used for any late awarded scholarships or any new scholarship that may open up. 

Please review these instructions

  • Step 1: Scholarship eligibility is dependent on admission to the University of Alaska. Apply for admission to the UA Campus you wish to attend by February 15. The admission application can be completed online
  • Step 2: Go to UAOnline and complete the required online scholarship application. Once logged in, choose Scholarships under the Student Services menu. The UAOnline portion of the scholarship application, including the personal profile, is required: you will not be considered for scholarships if this is not completed.
  • Step 3: Click on the UA in the scholarship application, or return to this page, and complete the supplemental application if you wish to apply for these specific scholarships.
  • Step 4: To receive full consideration for need-based scholarships, you must submit a completed Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) by February 15th. The FAFSA helps us determine your eligibility for any financial need based scholarships.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Submitting an incomplete application or failing to adhere to the requirements will result in disqualification. You will not be considered for scholarships unless you are admitted or have applied for admissions to a degree program. All selection criteria not required for scholarships will be obtained from your UA student record (e.g. degree program, academic major, class standing, etc.). You must be sure your UA student record is as complete and accurate as possible.


The deadline for 2017-2018 scholarship applications was February 15th, please check back to apply for 2018-2019 scholarships later this spring.
