The UAOnline scholarship application is open until February 15th. Once that date passes, various committees, both at UAA and at the statewide level will begin to review applications. 

If you are awarded a scholarship, you will receive an award letter at your UA email address. Most award letters will be sent before June 1st. Only scholarship recipients will be notified. Students who submit an application and are not selected for an award will not be notified, because awards can be made year-round, including the summer semester.

The award letter will also remind you about important terms and conditions. For example, UAA Foundation scholarships require recipients to adhere to the University of Alaska Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy. Students unable to maintain/ regain SAP eligibility, may lose out on all or a portion of their award.

 

Recipients of UAA Scholarships are required to write a "thank you" letter to the donor(s) of the scholarship

 

Guidance on Writing "Thank You" Letters

Scholarship donors are generous and caring people who unselfishly give to support the educational endeavors of students like you. They typically ask for nothing in return, but receiving a well written thank you letter from a student is always special and lets the donor know that his or her scholarship was greatly appreciated. Your letter reminds them why they gave in the first place and often helps secure continuing gifts for future students. Please make sure the letter is free of both grammatical and spelling errors. You are an important part of the University of Alaska Family, and the literacy demonstrated in your letter is a reflection on all of us.

Thank You Letter Tips:

  1. Write clearly and concisely.
  2. Double-check for typos and grammatical errors.
  3. Express enthusiasm.
  4. Be sincere.
  5. Make it personal;tell why this scholarship is important to you.
  6. Send it typewritten in business format.
  7. Use quality paper.

You were awarded a scholarship because your personal qualities and academic abilities stood above all other applicants. Sending a typed thank you letter confirms that this scholarship was important enough to you to take the time to present yourself in a professional manner.
