Annual Higher Education And Vocational Education Scholarship Deadline Extended

Posted on | Back to Posts

The Higher Education and Long-Term Vocational Scholarship deadline has been extended to May 15, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. Alaska Time. We will be continuing to monitor the COVID-19 virus and will adjust this schedule if needed. We would like to encourage students to submit complete applications as soon as they are reasonably able to do so. This is a once per year application program.

We anticipate that it may be difficult for some students to access official transcripts, as campuses and school districts are adjusting staffing levels. Therefore, BBNCEF will ACCEPT unofficial transcripts from your most recently completed academic semester for the 2020-2021 academic cycle. These can be submitted/emailed directly to You may also continue to submit official transcripts, if you would like. If you are unable to obtain your transcript, please contact Angela Peacock directly at or (907) 265-7856.
