  • Alaska Performance Scholarship (APS)

    In an effort to increase awareness about Alaska Performance Scholarship (APS) eligibility requirements, the Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education (ACPE) encourages Alaska’s schools to review ACPE’s APS website as well as the APS Award Checklist, which outlines current curriculum, test score, and GPA eligibility requirements.

     

    It is also important to remind everyone the APS test waiver is no longer in effect. Earning a qualifying score on the ACT, SAT, or WorkKeys is required by statute for APS eligibility for the Class of 2023.

     

    Additionally, ACPE will be offering APS workshops for interested school staff in March and April to give a review (or introduction!) to the Alaska Performance Scholarship program, its current requirements, and award notification information. An invitation to attend our APS workshops via Zoom will be forthcoming. We hope you can join!

     

    If you have any questions about the APS award or the programs and institutions in Alaska where it can be used, please visit the APS website to learn more.
