Nick Begich Alaskan Scholarships

Scholarship Value: $8,000
Awards Available: 15

The Nick Begich Scholarship Intern Fund was created in 1977 to carry on the ideals of the late Congressman Nicholas J. Begich from Alaska, who came to the state in 1956 as a teacher and believed that education was both a right and a privilege, one that must be available to all as a key to self-realization. Since inception, the Fund has provided over $300,000 in support to exceptional Alaskans, helping them realize their educational goals.

All applications (Scholarships or Internships / Fellowships) are due in February of each year, and reviewed by the Fund's Board of Directors. Successful applicants are announced in the month of April, often coinciding with the late Congressman's birthday.
