Journalism Support

Your gifts create results we see everyday. As stewards of these valuable resources, we are striving to be worthy of investment. When you give to CLA in memory of a loved one, or simply because you care, your contribution is cherished and used to further that most human of endeavors — learning.

Your donation can be used specifically to fund student or faculty research at UAF. Donations to Journalism Special Guest & Faculty Development provides funding for bringing in special lecturers throughout the year, as well as giving faculty the opportunity to conduct new research.

Scholarship Support 

Scholarships, Fellowships and student awards have an incredible impact on our Nanook Nation! We believe that enhanced student aid, through restricted or unrestricted gifts, helps retain the most talented of students. With fewer financial concerns, these students can focus chiefly on their studies, thereby reaching their full potential.

Donations to the Forbes L. Baker Scholarship are given in memory of Forbes L. Baker to students who are either juniors or seniors and who demonstrate outstanding potential in print journalism.


Thank you for continuing to support UAF Journalism!

Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law; you are not receiving any goods or services in exchange for the money you give.



"Environmental concern is now firmly embedded in public life: in education, medicine and law; in journalism, literature and art."

Department Chair Charles Mason
