Teacher Scholarships

Alaska Geographic and the National Park Service recognize that teachers have the ability to empower and inspire our youth. Every year, 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 and includes 1 professional development credit.  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.
