The Alaska Aerospace Development Corporation recently offered congratulations to fourteen Alaskan students, including Nathanael Mathis of Wrangell, who received scholarship awards of $5,000 each from the University of Alaska Foundation through the Alaska Aerospace Development Corporation Scholarship program. The students demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and citizenship qualifications to receive scholarships from the AADC program. Ten of the students receiving scholarships will enter the University of Alaska system as freshmen.
The AADC scholarship program provides $5,000 awards for up to 10 freshman students who are enrolled in a degree program majoring in mathematics, physics, engineering and business or in a technical science field such as computer science at any University of Alaska campus. Previous AADC recipients can apply for a scholarship renewal based upon availability of funds on an annual basis.
