There are full-time and part-time scholarships available. Each scholarship offered has specific criteria that the student must meet. Requirements can vary. Scholarship applicants must be officially admitted, degree or certificate seeking students. For anyone planning on attending college in the fall, it is important they call Campus Services and the Financial Aid office to be admitted into a degree program. This is critical in order to be eligible for these campus-based scholarships and other financial aid, including grants and other scholarships and loans. There is an application fee for official admission into a degree or certificate program.

A number of the scholarships that benefit the schools students are derived from families with long histories on the Kenai Peninsula. Scholarship endowments from the Damon Foundation, John and Mae Hakala, the Brockel’s, and the Dave Forbes, Riemann and Catherine Hays memorials provide scholarship funding for perpetuity. These scholarships continue to make a an impact on the community where these Alaskan families put down roots.
