Spring 2021: COVID-Impact Research Scholarship
We are pleased to announce an opportunity to offer UAF graduate students who do not currently receive any tuition support, three credits of tuition remission for the Spring 2021 semester.
This scholarship is to support research-active graduate students impacted by COVID that are self-funded for Spring 2021. Tuition support is available in Spring 2021 for self-funded students who have been enrolled in project/thesis (698/699) in Fall 2020 at UAF. This support is for additional 698/699 credits to help maintain the student as active in their program (6 or more credits/year). A maximum of three credits of 698/699 is available for each student at the resident tuition rate. Applications will be accepted between November 30 and December 4, 2020. Awards will be announced by Monday December 14.
- The student has no other source of university-based tuition support (e.g., graduate assistantships, grant support, employee tuition waivers).
- Research progress impacted by COVID. Impacts include, but are not limited to, illness, restrictions on travel to communities/fieldwork/conferences, reduced access to campus/lab spaces, increased family responsibilities, personal financial loss, etc.
- Registered for at least 1 credit of 698/699 in the fall 2020 semester.
