UA Scholars Night at UAA was held on Friday, November 1, 2013 at the Student Union for high school students who are eligible to receive the UA Scholars award. UA Scholars Night is a special reception hosted by Recruitment, Honors College, UA Scholars @ UAA, and the Statewide Office.

Dr. André Rosay, Justice Center Director, and Dr. Marny Rivera, Justice Undergraduate Program Coordinator,  were among the UAA faculty and staff in attendance to talk to students and their parents about opportunities, programs, and services at the UAA campus. The Justice Center provided materials on the Justice and Legal Studies options available to students.

The UA Scholars Program supports excellence in Alaska’s high schools by offering a 4-year, $11,000 scholarship to the top 10 percent of students in each qualified high school graduating class. The qualified high schools determine which students are ranked in the top 10 percent.  Scholars may attend any University of Alaska campuses: University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA), University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), or University of Alaska Southeast (UAS).
