AEBSD Scholarship Program
2011-2012 Academic Year

The Aleutians East Borough will continue to invest in your future through a scholarship program.
Scholarship awards will be announced in May 2011 for study during the
2011-2012 academic year.

These scholarships are open to ALL DISTRICT GRADUATES, regardless of current
enrollment status. Applicants need not be currently enrolled in high school or post-secondary
studies. This year’s program will operate similar to those in the past. Please read the following
instructions:

Scholarship Program

In addition to the District scholarships, each Advisory Committee will have scholarship funding
to award in any manner they deem appropriate. The following required materials received by the
District Office will be copied and shared with the Advisory Committees:

  • Send a letter of application addressed to School Board Members and Advisory School

Committee Members asking for scholarship assistance.

  • Include a maximum of two letters of recommendation from teachers, school
    administrators, counselors, deans or other officials of your school or place of
    employment.

  • Include the most current available, official transcript of your school work. If Fall of
    2010 is your most recent available transcript, that will suffice. College students and high
    school seniors will not have spring grades or transcripts by the deadline, so it is expected
    that the mid-year grade report is the latest official grades that you can send us. If you are
    not currently enrolled in school, some report from your employer or counselor would be
    helpful.

  • Include a 300 to 500-word essay describing your educational achievements, interests,
    and the career directions you have developed or are considering.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: All applications need to be received by the District Office by 5
p.m. on Friday, April 29, 2011.
Scholarship winners will be notified in writing sometime after
the local graduation ceremonies in May where they are publicly and formally announced.

If you have any questions, please contact Sophie Mack, Executive Secretary at
