Pursuing higher education can be difficult for any student because of the financial barriers and responsibilities associated with college.
Many students face additional challenges, such as a lack of support, the responsibility of holding down a job while attending school, medical emergencies, unplanned family emergencies or expenses, or other obstacles that make it difficult to follow the traditional paths to education. Students from Alaska face additional travel costs if they decide to attend school out of state.
This scholarship seeks to support students from Alaska facing obstacles on their paths to higher education, and to take a little bite out of the bottom line.
Any undergraduate student from Alaska who is pursuing a degree may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, please submit a video or essay telling us what have you learned about yourself or about the world that you could only experience in Alaska? And if you’ve traveled, what have you learned from traveling away from your home?
