Internship Applicants




AEIN scholarships will be awarded to successful applicants to cover the cost of tuition for the internship year.  Candidates from all College of Education teacher preparation programs are eligible to apply.  Federal regulations require that scholarship recipients teach in a high need school* for one academic year within six months of program completion (the high need school may be in another state).  Recipients unable to fulfill this requirement must arrange with the U.S. Department of Education to repay the scholarship monies.  While all teacher candidates committed to teaching in high-needs schools are encouraged to apply, preference will be given to candidates who are members of groups that are underrepresented in teaching professions (e.g., Alaska Natives, members of ethnic or cultural minority group, individuals with disabilities, male elementary education majors or male early childhood education majors, female secondary science majors, secondary math majors).  The application deadline has passed, thank you for all submissions.


  • Student must be accepted to the UAA College of Education Internship Program for the 2008-2009 school year.
  • Student must maintain adequate academic progress.


  • An essay that can be electronically submitted that: 1) explains why you are interested in working in a high needs school and describes what you would bring to that challenging environment and 2) paints a word picture of your ideal culturally responsive classroom (see application for required format)

Please email Robin Brooks or call 907-786-4404 if you have any questions.
