The Rural Alaska Honor's Institute (RAHI) provides rural and Alaska Native students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the college experience for six weeks. High school junior and senior students live in the dorms and take college level courses. They earn 8-10 credits and learn firsthand what it takes to succeed in college. In addition to the rigorous academic program, students learn study skills and time management and by the end of the program, our proven record shows these students are ready for the challenge of succeeding in college.
"RAHI really reinforced the self-discipline and commitment it takes to succeed in college
and really provided me the confidence I needed to transition from a small village to a
University. I also made life long friends who I still stay in touch with and remain
connected to RAHI because I am a believer in what the program is about and what it
has done for the students who have participated."
