The PITAAS Program, University of Alaska Southeast: Alaska Needs More Alaska Native Teachers

In this video short, Native teacher Andrea Durny talks about why she became a teacher and how the Native scholarship program, PITAAS, at the University of Alaska Southeast, helped her achieve her career dreams. PITAAS helped financially and gave her a safety net, or support group of people around her, while in college. Apply: www.uas.alaska.edu/pitaas

In Alaska schools, Alaska Natives make up 25% of the student body and less than 5% of the teaching force. PITAAS–which stands for Preparing Indigenous Teachers and Administrators for Alaska Schools–is a scholarship program with many services designed to meet its goals: more Alaska Native teachers and administrators in Alaskan schools.

Eligible students are Alaska Native students with junior or senior standing enrolled in undergraduate Teacher Preparation Programs, post graduate Teacher Certification Programs, and Graduate Certificates, Endorsements and Master of Education (M.Ed.) Programs.

The PITAAS Program can help you earn your education degree at the University of Alaska Southeast!
