Financial Aid Information

Unfortunately, ASRA cannot accommodate all students who request financial aid. The Committee reads the essays and supplementary information on all ASRA applications carefully to distinguish those with the greatest need and awards financial aid accordingly. Financial aid is reserved for those who cannot otherwise afford to attend. We encourage every student with need to apply for financial aid.

To apply for financial aid please complete the bottom section on the application.

Financial Aid is possible due to the support of our generous sponsors, including New York Life Company, Alaska Space Grant, Flint Hills Resources, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Arctic Division, and many individual supporters.


Alaska Statewide PTA grants

The Alaska PTA has a small scholarship fund for students wishing to attend an academic camp. The grant application must be submitted through the Alaska PTA. Several ASRA students have received this grant in previous years.

Other sources of financial aid

We encourage all students to seek aid locally. ASRA is recognized as a positive, academic experience by many organizations, such as village corporations and local businesses, and individuals and some may be willing to support a bright young student.

ASRA is working constantly to secure additional aid for students.

"Last year, with the help of financial aid , I went to ASRA and had one of the greatest times of my life. I plan on sharing the knowledge I learn." - ASRA Student
