Pave Your Way to Financial Freedom

In the 2019-2020 academic year, the UAF School of Management awarded over $103,000 in privately-funded scholarships to 45 students.

Students receive awards based on merit, financial need, outstanding achievement in specialized fields, or any combination of these criteria. These scholarships are privately funded, meaning that while a FAFSA is encouraged, it is not mandatory.
