People's Endowment

The People’s Endowment was established at the UA Foundation in 1986 with the intent to provide a source of funds for projects that will improve UAF but would likely remain unfunded due to institutional priorities. Grants are intended to be used for a special project or to fill a critical need at UAF. Proposals will be accepted from UAF faculty, staff, and students. All proposals will be submitted to the People’s Endowment Board for review and selection.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: November 27, 2018 - January 15, 2019 (dates are subject to change)


Early proposal submissions are welcome! Board members will review all proposals in January 2018. 

Please direct inquiries to the Provost’s office at, Jennifer Hoppough at 907-474-7096 or Jessica Skipper at 907-474-6634.
