2011/2012 UA scholarship application deadline

The deadline for the 2011/2012 UA scholarships is Feb. 15, 2011. Hundreds of awards are available, totaling over $697,000 so far this academic year. Last year, many scholarships were not awarded due to a lack of eligible applicants, so all students are strongly encouraged to apply! Applicants must have their 2011/2012 FAFSA filed by Feb. 15, listing UAA, UAF or UAS as their primary campus. Students not interested in applying for the UA scholarships can still file their FAFSA up until June 30, 2012. The online application is available at www.fafsa.gov.

The UA scholarship application is available to students at uaonline.alaska.edu, and supplemental information for some scholarships can be submitted via the www.uaa.alaska.edu/scholarships website.
