Coronavirus information

In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the University of Alaska Anchorage has taken steps to protect the health and safety of our campus community. Visit the University of Alaska Coronavirus Information website to learn how UAA and the university system are responding to this situation. Find links to communications, policy guidance, resources and information about the university's community restrictions, which apply to all faculty, staff and students. The UAA Student Health and Counseling Center remains open at this time to serve UAA students. For information about COVID-19 symptoms and current health recommendations, visit the CDC website and the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.

Education Abroad Scholarships

There are many local, national and international scholarships available to help students pursue their education abroad. 

UAA Scholarship Website

The Office of Student Financial Assistance's scholarship page contains scholarship information divided by type. Notice there is a "Study Abroad Scholarship" page on the left-hand menu, but also remember some UAA specific scholarships and other third party scholarships will transfer over to your semester or year abroad. Check with the organization awarding the funds.
