Each year, the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce offers at least one, $1,000 scholarship to Fairbanks North Star Borough high school graduating seniors that plan to attend the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) or UAF Community and Technical College in the fall semester immediately following graduation.

The scholarship is intended to encourage graduating seniors to pursue future education and career opportunities in the greater Fairbanks area. Additionally, in support of the business community, and in recognition of the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District’s effort to hire and retain highly qualified teachers, preference is given to applicants interested in obtaining an education or business-related degree.

The application can be submitted electronically at http://www.k12northstar.org/custom/onlineForms/chamberApp/. Two letters of recommendation (at least one from a Fairbanks Chamber member) and an official transcript must accompany the application to be considered.

Applicants must meet all stated requirements and complete and return the application by 5PM on April 11, 2014. Questions regarding the scholarship should be directed to Jonni Roos at the Chamber Office at (907) 374-6705.
