  • Write your essay questions in a word or Google Docs, ensure correct spelling, grammar, and ideally have someone in the Learning Center or Library read your essay questions with you.
  • For the "Tell us anything else that you would like the scholarship selection committees to consider when evaluating you as a scholarship candidate."  do not leave this question blank. How will receiving a scholarship be better than not receiving a scholarship? How will it improve your educational goals? Do you have extenuating financial circumstances?

Don't forget to submit your FAFSA

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Every student should file a FAFSA each year they attend college because in addition to applying for the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Student Loans and Federal Work-Study, the State of Alaska, the University of Alaska Scholarship Foundation, the Kodiak College scholarship and tuition award committees, many private scholarship agencies use your FAFSA information to determine award offers. These various agencies have different income eligibility requirements, and some awards are non-need based, using only demographic information provided on the FAFSA.

What you need to complete your FAFSA:

1. Your Federal Student Aid (FSA ID) - to electronically file the application

2. The UAA (Kodiak College) School Code - 011462

3. FAFSA requires your 2021 tax returns for the 2023-2024 academic school year - If you have not completed your taxes, you may submit your FAFSA with estimated income and update your FAFSA after your taxes are complete. If you are a dependent student you will also need your parent’s tax information and they must apply for a FSA ID to sign the FAFSA along with you (the FAFSA will determine if you are considered dependent or independent according to federal guidelines). Tip: Use the IRS data retrieval tool from within the FAFSA application to import your tax information directly into the FAFSA application. This is the best way to provide tax information
