CRCD Scholars Award Print

Northwest Campus is happy to announce a student funding opportunity, the 21-22 CRCD Scholars Award, provided by Congress under Section 18004 (a)(2) of the CARES Act! We encourage all regionally enrolled, admitted students to apply! Contact a NWC advisor for any assistance or further information about the scholarship.

The funding will be used to support student success through scholarships through December 31, 2021.


  • The CRCD Scholars Award is available to degree seeking students enrolled in any CRCD degree program or attending through any rural campus in the Dillingham, Kotzebue, Bethel, Nome, and Interior Alaska regions.
  • Students must be admitted to UAF or have applied for University of Alaska Fairbanks admissions for the semester in which they are applying for funding.
  • Students must be enrolled in at least 3 UAF credits.
  • If a student drops course(s) and falls below the minimum number of credits required, then the CRCD Scholars award will be reversed from the student’s account. Students must maintain CRCD Scholars Award enrollment requirements ( > 3 credits) to remain CRCD Scholars award eligible. Students falling below minimum enrollment status at any time will subsequently result in CRCD Scholars award funds reversed from the student’s account.

Students may receive up to but may not exceed the following amounts:
  • Part-time students: $750 per semester (totaling $1,500 for FY22)
  • Full-time students: $1,500 per semester (totaling $3,000 for FY22)
Eligible students may reapply for Scholars Award funding every semester through summer 2021 in which they are enrolled. Scholars Award funding can be used to cover the following:
  • Tuition and fees
  • Books and course materials
  • Admission application fees
  • Housing / Meals
  • Graduation application fees
Scholarships MAY NOT be used to lift student holds or to pay off existing student debt.
