General Housing Scholarship

Campus Services and the Department of Residence Life are proud to continue a $1,000 per semester General Housing Scholarship which will extend through the 2023-2024 academic year. All students living in student housing in the fall 2023 and spring 2024 semesters will automatically receive the scholarship in the form of a $1,000 discount on their semester housing costs. No additional application is necessary beyond submission of the housing application, which is now available! This scholarship was created in recognition of the ongoing financial impact of the pandemic and in an effort to make the amazing experience of living on campus an option to as many students as possible. We are also pleased to share that student housing costs at UAA have seen no significant increases in over four years, making this scholarship even more impactful as it discounts prices that have been kept intentionally low to support students.

General Housing Scholarship Details 

This is a $1,000 per semester scholarship for a total possible annual discount of $2,000 if a student lives in student housing in both the fall 2023 and spring 2024 semesters. The scholarship was created for the 2022-2023 academic year is being extended for one additional year. Students will be notified if UAA decides to extend the scholarship into any future semester. All of the room types in UAA’s residential community are eligible for the scholarship (i.e. apartment, residence hall, single, double, shared room).

Eligibility Requirements

The only criteria a student must meet to receive the scholarship is living in student housing at UAA during the fall 2023 or spring 2024 semesters. There is not a separate application for the scholarship or any other action required beyond living in student housing. Students do not have to live in student housing for both semesters to qualify for the scholarship.

Terms and Conditions

In most cases, the scholarship can be stacked on top of any other discounts, rate reductions or financial assistance applied to the semester room cost for student housing, regardless of the source of the discount or funding. The scholarship can only be awarded in the form of a discount (i.e. a reduction in the amount charged to a student’s account), and cannot be used to pay for the deposit, application fee or any other charges or fees a student owes to UAA. If a student moves onto campus after the beginning of the semester and has their housing charges prorated, the amount of the scholarship will also be prorated. 

The scholarship amount, eligibility requirements and determination process, and all other terms related to the General Housing Scholarship included here are subject to change, with or without notice, at the sole discretion of the University.
