UAS Alaska GED Achiever Scholarship

Longtime UAS employees and alumni Michael Ciri and Jeri Cary are both proud recipients of the Alaska GED. They know the importance of a welcoming path to higher education for those with a GED. After receiving their GEDs in Juneau, Michael and Jeri were both awarded scholarships to UAJ (later UAS). These scholarships helped them overcome feelings of personal failure and assured them that higher education was not closed to them. This set them on paths that led to multiple university degrees and long and happy careers serving their community at the same institution that had first opened its door to them. Michael and Jeri want that door to stay open, and they hope that an endowed scholarship can help ensure that it does.

The UAS Alaska GED Achiever Scholarship is a new fund that will provide financial assistance for tuition and other related educational expenses to students at UAS who have passed the General Equivalency Development (GED) test, earning an alternative high school equivalent diploma.


· Recipient must be a student at the University of Alaska Southeast.

· Recipient must have passed the General Equivalency Development (GED) test, earning an alternative high school equivalent diploma.

· Recipient must be a resident of Alaska.

 

This scholarship should award a minimum of $500 per academic year to part-time students and a minimum of $1,000 per academic year to full-time students.
