350 students receive Sealaska scholarships totaling $405,621

Posted: May 9, 2013 - 12:05am

Sealaska Corp. announced Tuesday that it has awarded $405,621 in scholarships to 350 Sealaska tribal member shareholders and descendants of shareholders.

The merit-based awards are going toward students who plan to pursue college degrees or vocational-technical training during the next school year, the Alaska Native corporation said in its announcement.

“A large number of the awards go to Alaskan institutions,” said Chris E. McNeil Jr., Sealaska’s president and chief executive officer. “The funds awarded through the scholarship program help support Alaskan educational institutions while helping Sealaska tribal member shareholders further their education.”

Of the total number of students who received scholarships, 175 are Alaska residents, 135 are from Southeast Alaska and 58 are from Juneau, where $75,827 of the total scholarship money is going.

The city with the second-most scholarship recipients this year, behind Juneau, is Sitka. Sixteen Sitkans received Sealaska scholarships.
