Applying for Academic Scholarships at UAA

UAA is using a new Alaska AcademicWorks scholarship application system for connecting students with scholarships. Students fill out a general UA scholarship application form and UAA campus-specific form. Your answers — including your major, GPA, and interests will be used in an algorithm to find scholarships. See the UAA Scholarships Resource Page.


Workshops are available to learn more about the new Alaska AcademicWorks scholarship application process.
