GEAR UP ALASKA Scholarship Program These scholarships are apparently not being funded any longer. These scholarships are for those students who participated in the GEAR Up program in 6th, 7th and 8th grades.They can be for up to $7000 per year. The federal government provides the funding and the state handles the disbursement. Applicants must complete the FAFSA as well as submitting a GEAR UP ALASKA application postmarked by May 31. The federal grant used to fund the GEAR UP Alaska Scholarship has been exhausted so it is unlikely that these awards will be made for the 2011/2012 academic year.
