Take the Next Step

Once you have submitted your UAOnline scholarship application, you are not necessarily finished. Here are some important things to remember.

Take the Next Step!

Submit Supplemental Information for both "General" and Major-Specific Scholarships

A list of all KPC scholarships awarded through the UAOnline process is provided on the KPC Scholarships page. However, just filling out a scholarship application in UAOnline is not always enough. Some of these scholarships require applicants to complete more than just the UAOnline application to be considered. All scholarships with a supplemental components are indicated with an *asterisk.  Supplemental requirements must also be received by the UAOnline application deadline. Special note: Some UAA scholarships may state that they prefer certain qualifications, rather than require. We strongly encourage students to apply for these scholarships even if they don't meet all of the requirements.

UA Statewide Scholarships

Be sure to follow the UA Statewide Scholarships link available with your UAOnline Scholarship Application. These scholarships are open to students at ANY University of Alaska campus. Pay close attention, some may require additional short essays or demographic data not requested in the UAOnline scholarship application.

Continue to Edit Your UAOnline Scholarship Profile Essays

Remember, you can still make changes to your scholarship profile essays on UAOnline, even if you have already submitted it. As you pursue educational goals, reshaping your application will increase your chances of receiving scholarships. If you need assistance writing your UAOnline Application profile essays, check out our page on How to Write Scholarship Essays. We've also included the newly revised Scholarship Scoring Rubric to help you maximize your chances of achieving the highest possible score during the review process.

Complete the FAFSA

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is used for two things:

  1. The FAFSA provides biographical information that may be used to help identify eligible applicants for some scholarships.
  2. Some scholarships require that students demonstrate "financial need" to receive an award. "Financial need" is measured by the difference between annual college expenses and the potential amount that your family can afford to contribute. Please don't skip applying for "need based" scholarships, just because you and your family don't qualify for "financial need." Lacking federally-defined "financial need" does not mean you are ineligible for scholarships at UAA.

Note for First-time KPC students

To be considered for KPC scholarships, you must apply for admission before the deadline of the upcoming year you seek scholarship funds for. You must also submit a partial high school transcript to evaluate whether you meet the GPA requirements of a given scholarship.
