Johnny and Sarah Frank Scholarship
The Johnny and Sarah Frank Scholarship provides financial support to University of Alaska students who find preserving Native cultures and homelands in northern Alaska, the Yukon, or Northwest Territories important. In doing so it seeks to honor the memory of the two distinguished Gwich’in Athabaskan storytellers who lived in Venetie and Gold Camp, Alaska. Applicants must provide a paragraph about the importance of preserving Native cultures and homelands in northern Alaska, the Yukon, or Northwest Territories, whichever is personally meaningful to them.
Requirements: be enrolled for at least six credit hours; have and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5; a resident of Alaska. Preference will be given to students from Arctic Village or Venetie as well as students from Ft. Yukon, Chalkyitsik, Birch Creek, Circle, Beaver, Eagle, Old Crow, Ft. McPherson, Tsiigehtchic, Inuvik, or Aklavik.
