At the event, we will announce and celebrate our 2019 full-time and part-time basic scholarship recipients, as well as our 2019 – 2020 competitive scholarship recipients. This fall, we are awarding 277 scholarships, including 83 part-time basic scholarships, 148 full-time basic scholarships, and 46 competitive scholarships, for a grand total of $378,000 in scholarships!
We’ll also hear from Foundation staff, a student speaker and one of our alumni. We are pleased to announce this year’s alumna speaker, Sonja Sommer, who received an associate degree in applied accounting, an occupational endorsement certificate in bookkeeping, and a bachelor’s of business administration in general business, all from the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF).
This year’s student speaker is Rebekah Hartman, a junior at UAF, where she is going for her bachelor’s degree in animation. Rebekah was selected this fall for the $5,000 Morris Thompson Committee Choice competitive scholarship.
Students, family, friends, teachers, donors and other supporters are invited and encouraged to attend. We hope to see you there!
