The NSRAA board established the scholarship program at their March 2001 meeting.
In March 2011, the NSRAA board added a third scholarship, specifically for two-year degrees, including most vocational / technical programs.
Three $2500 scholarships are available annually. Those eligible to apply are those who hold a current State of Alaska salmon limited entry permit and paid enhancement tax to NSRAA in the year prior to the application, and their children. NSRAA full-time and seasonal benefited employees and their dependent children and other immediate family members are also eligible to apply.
At this time the scholarships are non-renewable, but winners can apply again in the future.
The scholarship is not limited to students who intend to study fisheries.
Application forms may be picked up at (or requested from) the NSRAA office in Sitka. Forms will also be available at the counselor’s office at your local high school.
The application period runs from January 1 through April 15 (or the Monday after the 15th if the 15th falls on a weekend).
