Welcome to UA Scholars @ UAA Program 

Our mission is to orient, advise and track the academic progress of UA Scholars to ensure they persist through graduation.  Fostering community and support among student cohorts is achieved by expanding academic and transition support services to benefit all UA Scholars through partnership with the Statewide UA Scholars Program, and various departments at the University of Alaska Anchorage.

 

Program Overview

The UA Scholars Program supports excellence in Alaska’s high schools by offering a 4-year, $11,000 scholarship to the top 10 percent of students in each qualified high school graduating class. The qualified high schools determine which students are ranked in the top 10 percent.  Scholars may attend any University of Alaska campus: University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA), University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), or University of Alaska Southeast (UAS).

“Alaska students should have every opportunity possible to attend college right here in Alaska. Today’s UA Scholars are the leaders of tomorrow.  I know they’ll play a major role in determining what kind of state Alaska will be…”

Former University of Alaska President, Mark Hamilton
