SUBJ/ALASKA SEA SERVICES SCHOLARSHIP FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2017-2018//

RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces the requirements and solicits applications 
for the Alaska Sea Services Scholarship Program.  The Alaska Sea Services 
Scholarship program awards up to six 1,000 dollar scholarships annually for 
undergraduate education to dependent children and spouses of Navy, Marine 
Corps, and Coast Guard personnel who legally claim Alaska as their state of 
residence.  Applications are now being accepted through 1 March 2017 for the 
FY-17 selection board which convenes in April 2017.

2.  Background.  Citizens of Alaska raised funds for a 10,000 dollar war bond 
as a gift to the USS JUNEAU (CL 52) during World War II.
After the sinking of the USS JUNEAU (CL 52), this gift was to have been 
presented to the USS ALASKA (CB 1), but the USS ALASKA (CB 1) was 
decommissioned before the presentation.  Consequently, the governor of the 
territory of Alaska and the Secretary of the Navy agreed that the bond would 
be left on deposit in the First National Bank of Juneau until the USS ALASKA 
(CB 1) was recommissioned or another appropriate application could be found.  
In 1986, the Navy established the Alaska Sea Services fund.

3.  Requirements.  To be considered for the Alaska Sea Services Scholarship, 
an applicant must be the dependent (child or spouse) of a legal resident of 
the state of Alaska who is, or was at the time of death/designation as 
missing-in-action, a Regular or Reserve U.S.
Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard member on active duty, inactive duty, or 
retired with or without pay.  Selected candidates will be those who rate 
highest in five key areas below:
    a.  Academic proficiency.
    b.  Character.
    c.  Leadership ability.
    d.  Community involvement.
    e.  Financial need.

4.  Selection.  A selection panel appointed by the Navy League Foundation 
will screen all applications.  Their recommendations will then be submitted 
to Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) who will select the winner(s), 
after which selectees will be notified and scholarship funds will be 
disbursed to the appropriate academic institution.

5.  Applicant procedures.  Up to six 1,000 dollar scholarships are awarded to 
applicants who meet the specified criteria.  Applicants must also show 
acceptance at an accredited college or university for full-time undergraduate 
study for a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.  No more than two 
scholarship awards may be given to any individual during pursuit of the four-
year degree.  Applications open on 1 November 2016 and close on 1 March 2017.  
To apply on line, visit the Navy League web site at 
http://navyleague.org/scholarship.
