The Alaska Performance Scholarship rewards Alaska's hardest-working students with up to $4,755 a year toward their college or career and technical education program costs. Three award levels are offered. To qualify, students must take a specific, rigorous high school curriculum, earn a minimum 2.5 GPA, and do well on a college or career-readiness exam (such as the ACT or SAT). Qualified students need only complete the FAFSA by the scholarship deadline to apply. Awards can be used at any regionally accredited college or university in Alaska or for approved career and technical education programs in the state. For details on the three award levels, what constitutes a "rigorous high school curriculum", and other requirements, visit aps.alaska.gov. Also, The Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education (ACPE) and the Alaska Department of Education & Early Development periodically host WebEx/Teleconference meetings for the general public to learn more about this scholarship. Students, parents, educators, and other interested parties are welcome to join. Participants will learn about eligibility requirements, award levels, the application process, and using the award. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions. Go to aps.alaska.gov to view a schedule of available sessions, and to register. For either meeting type, you must register at least 24 hours in advance to participate. Once you have registered online, you will receive an email with instructions on how to participate in the meeting. Internet and telephone access are required to participate. If you are unable to participate in the online meetings but would like additional information about APS sent to you by mail or fax, please call 1-800-441-2962 (465-2962 in Juneau).
