UA Scholarship Deadline

Complete your application to any of the UA campuses and then apply for scholarships. We have a single application for hundreds of scholarships plus links to many more scholarships.

There are only 5 questions on the scholarship application, with one being a personal essay (no more than 500 words). What to write:
  • We want to learn something about you.
  • What do you plan to do/study/achieve at UAF?
  • What achievements have you had in high school?
  • Who has had an important influence on your life?  

    Sometimes we receive only a couple of sentences and that just doesn't tell us enough about PLEASE, use all 500 words!  

    How to...

    1. Apply for admission
    2. Watch the video below and then apply for scholarships (it's that easy):

    FAFSA Facts
    • The FAFSA stands for FREE APPLICATION FOR FEDERAL STUDENT AID - if someone asks you to pay for're at the wrong site. Go to for details on how to complete the FAFSA. 
    • The FAFSA is the application for the new Alaska Performance Scholarship.
    • If your parents have completed their taxes electronically, they can automatically load their tax information into their FAFSA anytime after January 30th.
    • If your parents won't be completing their taxes soon, they can still complete the FAFSA with information from their W-2's, and 1099's or use last year's taxes as an estimate.
    • The form continues to become simpler to use and faster to complete.
