BLaST scholarships pay tuition, fees and living expenses for up to 12 months (up to $16,000) for college students who are enrolled full-time in life or social science degrees at UAF. BLaST scholars also gain mentored experience in biomedical research.
Current and prospective UAF undergraduate students from anywhere in Alaska, from all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds, are invited to apply. Students should be interested in pursing biomedical and health careers and can be pursuing degrees in biology, psychology, chemistry and other biomedical and health fields.
BLaST aims to engage students from diverse backgrounds, especially those from rural Alaska, in biomedical research as a way to foster their interest and success in biomedical and health careers. The National Institutes of Health funds BLaST.
