Students are encouraged to embrace relationships that foster philanthropic and volunteer opportunities that enhance academic, cultural, emotional, and social development.
The Seawolf Community Service Award is bestowed upon a student who exhibits an exemplary commitment to volunteer service. The intent of this award is to publicly recognize and honor individuals for their dedication and recognize the importance of community involvement.

The Seawolf Community Service Award Selection Committee is composed of two faculty/staff members and two students not applying for the Seawolf Community Service Award. After verifying eligibility, the committee evaluates the application materials based on accuracy and thoroughness of application materials, service projects, breadth of participation, and significance of contributions to communities.
Award recipients receive up to $1500 in tuition credit for Fall 2013, a Seawolf lapel pin, and certificate of recognition.
The number of actual awards available each semester varies. All applicants are notified of their award status within ten days following the committee's decision. Tuition credit recipients must be admitted to the University of Alaska Anchorage (Goose Lake Campus). The tuition credit may only be used for Anchorage campus classes that are not self-support and used in the Fall 2013 semester. Tuition credit recipients must meet all published and unpublished eligibility requirements. If, after informing a recipient they are receiving a tuition credit waiver, the University determines they are not eligible for a tuition credit waiver; the recipient will retain the Seawolf Community Service Award distinction, but will not receive any additional consideration in place of the forgone tuition credit wavier.
To be considered for the Seawolf Community Service Award, a complete application must be received by the Student Clubs and Greek Life staff in Student Union 210 deadline on March 22nd, 2013.
