Teacher Scholarships Available
Alaska Geographic and the National Park Service recognize that teachers have the ability to empower and inspire our youth. These Alaska Geographic funded scholarships provide financial support to teachers wishing to attend our courses in Denali. Teachers that attend our field courses help us share park science and an appreciation for public lands, our joint mission with the Murie Science and Learning Center.
The scholarship award covers 75% of the field course fee. To assist teachers and school districts from remote Alaskan schools, the scholarship committee will also award a few scholarships that cover 100% of the course fee and provide a $400 travel stipend. The scholarship program is available to full-time K-12 teachers within Alaska. Applications are evaluated on the applicant’s anticipated use of the subject matter in a creative and practical manner.
