Scholarship, Minimum $1,000 per student per academic year

Purpose: To provide scholarships to deserving social work students enrolled at the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ College of Liberal Arts. The minimum award amount will be $1,000 per student and per academic year.

Scholarship, Minimum $500 per academic year

Purpose: To provide funds for deserving social work students.

Named in honor of Dr. Berman, an engaging teacher who founded the Social Work Department at UAF in the 1980s, this scholarship has been awarded to six social work
majors since 2000.

”With him, it never felt like a lecture,” says Naomi Horne, a social work alum. The fund reached endowment level by
efforts from the two social work
clubs, the Organization of Student Social Workers and the Alaska Native Social Workers Association and a matching program created by Chancellor Marshall Lind in 2006.
