Scholarships

There are many websites and scholarship opportunities available.  Remember searching for and applying for scholarships is each student’s responsibility. I am happy to assist you in the process, please schedule a time to meet.

Quick Tips: Start working for the Alaska Performance Scholarship your freshman year you could graduate with almost $20,ooo of scholarship money for an Alaskan College or Vocational/Technical School.  UA Scholar is an $12,000 scholarship for the University of Alaska awarded to the top 10% of graduating high school seniors and is initially awarded based off of junior year cumulative spring GPA.  (Small schools 1 student is nominated due to small senior class sizes)

Plan ahead – Start your search early!
