Each year, several events are sponsored by the Development Office to celebrate the generosity of those who choose to include UAF in their giving priorities. The annual Celebration of Giving and the Annual Scholarship and Award Breakfast are two of our most popular events.

Blue and Gold Gala

Feb. 9, 2018

The Blue and Gold Gala celebrates the strong connection between UAF and the Fairbanks community. UAF would not be here if it weren’t for the support of our alumni and friends, and our shared history creates incredible connections that we are proud to celebrate. In 2017, four distinct events (the Celebration of Giving, Alumni Awards ceremony, and the Emil Usibelli Distinguished Teaching, Research, and service Awards) were combined into one signature celebration, recognizing distinguished guests, philanthropists, alumni, and faculty. Through philanthropic gifts and sponsorships, the Gala raises awareness of the need for financial support for our students. Learn more about this year's Gala.

2017 Scholarship Breakfast Program CoverAnnual Scholarship Breakfast

Save the date: April 24, 2018

Each spring, Development and Alumni Relations hosts a breakfast that connects private scholarship donors to student recipients.

Donors have created more than 440 privately funded scholarships and awards at UAF. They provide over $1.3 million in financial aid to students each year.

It’s inspiring to see students and donors together, sharing the impact of the outstanding opportunities that are made possible with the generous support of UAF donors.
