Once you have submitted your UAOnline Scholarship Application, you are not necessarily finished. Here are some important things to remember:

Submit Supplemental Information for both "General" and Major-Specific Scholarships

A list of all UAA scholarships awarded through the UAOnline process is provided on the navigation tabs to the left, either under "General" or by a college-specific links. In addition, some of these scholarships require applicants to complete more than just the UAOnline application to be considered. All scholarships with a supplemental component are indicated either with an *asterick or in the case of "General" scholarships requiring supplements, in a list format.  Supplemental requirements must also be received by the February 15th deadline. Special note: Some UAA scholarships may state that they prefer certain qualifications, rather than require, we still recommend that you apply to these scholarships even if you don't meet all the requirements.

UA Statewide Scholarships

Be sure to follow the UA Statewide Scholarships link available with your UAOnline Scholarship Application. These scholarships are open to students at ANY University of Alaska campus. Pay close attention, some may require additional short essays or demographic data not requested in the UAOnline scholarship application.

Complete the FAFSA

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is used for two things:

  1. The FAFSA provides biographical information that may be used to help identify eligible applicants for some scholarships.
  2. Some scholarships require that students demonstrate "financial need" to receive an award. "Financial need" is measured by the difference between annual college expenses and the potential amount that your family can afford to contribute. Please don't skip applying for "need based" scholarships, just because you and your family don't qualify for "financial need." Lacking federally-defined "financial need" does not mean you are ineligible for scholarships at UAA.

Note for First-time UAA students

To be considered for UAA scholarships, you must apply for admission before February 15th of the year you seek scholarship funds. You must also submit a partial high school transcript to evaluate whether you meet the GPA requirements of a given scholarship.
