The AAHPA is pleased to offer annual scholarships to qualifying Alaskan students going into fields of study or vocation related to the maritime industry and environment. In 2021 we will award two $1,000 scholarships. Additionally, we awarded a TRANSPAC Marinas sponsored scholarship in the amount of $2,500 to students pursuing a STEM field of study.
