About the UA Scholars program

The UA Scholars Program encourages Alaska's high school graduates to get their advanced education in Alaska.

The UA Scholars Award is an $11,000 scholarship which can cover eligible expenses such as undergraduate tuition, fees, room, board, books, supplies and other educational costs associated with going to a UA school.

  • Students eligible for the award are designated by their high school if they are in the top 10 percent of their junior class at the end of their junior year.
  • The award is disbursed in the amount of $1,375 per semester for a total of eight semesters over a five year period.
  • Scholars are required to maintain full-time enrollment status (minimum of 12 credits) and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5.
