The Alaska School Nutrition Association (AKSNA) recognizes eligible students who obtain either their high school diploma or their GED certification and are planning on attending a post-secondary institution with a one-time cash gift.

To qualify you must be an eligible dependent (son, daughter, legal dependent at the time the application is submitted) of an active member of AKSNA and you must have received either a high school diploma or a GED certificate and be enrolled in a post-secondary institution before 30 June 2023.

Applications and essays must be received by 1 April 2023 at 11:00 p.m. AKDT. The application must complete the official application form found at aksna.org.

Applications will be reviewed by the AKSNA Scholarship Committee to verify eligibility.

Applicants will be notified of approval and will need to submit documentation of graduation or GED completion and acceptance letter of the post-secondary institution by 30 June 2023.

AKSNA will send a check for the approved amount and to the address noted on the applicant’s form within 60 days of receiving the documentation.
