Jan. 21: UAA Scholarship Workshop

by Michelle Saport  |   

The University of Alaska 2020/2021 Scholarship Application is open every year, Oct. 1-Feb. 15.

Did you know that students received over $1 MILLION in UAA scholarships last year? In order to receive a scholarship, continuing students must submit an application between Oct. 1 and Feb. 15 each year. During our scholarship workshops, the Office of Financial Aid will provide a guided overview of the University of Alaska Scholarship Portal. The overview will demonstrate how to navigate the application, provide tips on writing effective scholarship essays, and identify ways to increase your chances of receiving an award.

UAA Scholarship Workshop schedule The next UAA Scholarship Workshop is Tuesday, Jan. 21, noon-1 p.m. in Gorsuch Commons, Room 107. View the Financial Aid Workshops calendar for the complete schedule.

What to bring to the workshop Please note the workshop location:

  • Gorsuch Commons, Room 107 does not have computers, so please bring a personal laptop, tablet, or mobile device if you wish to start your application during the workshop.
  • Rasmuson Hall, Room 106 (Multicultural Center) is a computer lab and you only need to bring your sign-in information if you wish to start your application during the workshop.
