Alaska Education Grant (AEG)

Alaska Education Grant (AEG) provides need-based financial assistance to eligible Alaska students attending qualifying postsecondary institutions in Alaska.

Grant awards typically range from $500 to $4,000 per academic year for students who have qualifying unmet financial need as determined by the FAFSA.

The availability of funds is limited, so eligible students with the highest financial need will be awarded in order of need until funds are exhausted.
