UA Scholars Program
EACH YEAR THE UA SCHOLARS PROGRAM OFFERS A $12,000 SCHOLARSHIP TO THE TOP 10 PERCENT OF GRADUATES FROM QUALIFIED ALASKA HIGH SCHOOLS.
The UA Scholars Program is one of our proudest funding achievements. This program is a cornerstone of the University’s efforts to keep our youth in state and to educate Alaska’s brightest graduating high school seniors. Students are designated by their own community high school based on academic standing at the end of their junior year. As depicted in "UA in Review" this program has been successful.
• More than 9,000 students have been funded.
• Land Management also provides funding for foster students each year to attend the University. In the school year from 2020 - 2021 there were 55 youth foster students.
• The UA Scholars program is funded through the Land Grant Endowment Trust Fund.
