People's Endowment

The People’s Endowment was established at the UA Foundation in 1986 with the intent to provide a source of funds for projects that will improve UAF but would likely remain unfunded due to institutional priorities. Grants are intended to be used for a special project or to fill a critical need at UAF. Proposals will be accepted from UAF faculty, staff, and students. All proposals will be submitted to the People’s Endowment Board for review and selection.
