arctic pt scholarship
Did you know that living in Alaska can affect your student loans in big ways?
Did you know that living in Alaska can affect your student loans in big ways? According to LendEDU, residents of the state have some of the highest student loan balances in the nation. In Alaska, where cost-of-living expenses tend to be steep and employment opportunities are relatively scarce, students have an average debt load of $31,941, which is nearly $6K higher than the national average.
To help alleviate some of this burden for Alaskan college students and recent graduates, we’ve created a scholarship program called arctic pt solutions (APS). This award is open to all US citizens and international students who reside in Alaska or attend any institution located within Alaska.
The 2019 APS scholarship will award three winners:
One winner will receive a first place prize of $2,500.
Two additional winners will each receive a second place prize of $1,000.
