A scholarship of up to $1,000 will be awarded, multiple awardees may be selected. Applicants must be enrolled at least part time (6 credits minimum) in a graduate study program at any accredited Alaskan university or college and carry a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 or better. Applicant's full-time or part-time status will be considered during the review process.

Scholarships can be awarded to students who have previously received an AWRA Alaska Section scholarship, however, there must be distinct progress toward completion of a degree program.
