Our Opportunities

Welcome to the University of Alaska Scholarship Application System.

Through the generosity of private donors, the University of Alaska awards numerous scholarships each academic year. Scholarship award amounts vary and may not represent total tuition costs. Things considered in the selection process include demonstrated academic success, donor-stipulated criteria, and financial need.

Below is a listing of financial aid opportunities that are available to students enrolled or accepted within the University of Alaska. The list includes brief information about the scholarship qualifications and application procedures. This list shows all scholarships offered through UA Foundation. Automatch scholarships will appear with “None” listed under the “Action” column – this means an additional application is not required for consideration.

When you are viewing the scholarship opportunity, if “Financial Need” is a requirement, you must file a FAFSA between October 1 and February 15 to have financial need determined by your campus’ Financial Aid Office. It is in your best interest to complete the FAFSA, even if you do not think you will qualify for need-based aid or if you are not interested in receiving federal aid. Demographic information contained in the FAFSA but not related to financial need may be used to determine additional scholarship eligibility. If you and/or your parents have not completed tax returns, you may complete the FAFSA using estimated taxes.

Get started on your scholarship search now. It’s as easy as 1-2-3-4!

1. Sign on the system with your UA ID (3xxxxxxx) and ELMO password.
2. Complete the General Application and any supplemental applications presented. The system syncs with your data. You are automatically matched with scholarship opportunities for which you meet the criteria and the system provides additional “recommended” scholarships that may be available to you.
3. After you complete the applications, you’re done! If you are awarded a scholarship you will receive an award email to your UA email address. You can also check on the status of your application by logging back into the system at any time.
4. Follow up. The system also includes information on private and external scholarships. These deadlines change often so check back under “External” opportunities.

Reminder: Your completed General Application will be archived and removed from the system in August. You must complete a new General Application at the beginning of each fall semester. The deadline to apply for most scholarships is February 15.

Click on the “Sign-in” button at the top, right-side of your screen.
