Recently a lawsuit was filed by four students in Alaska seeking to protect the Higher Education Investment Fund (HEIF). This is the funding source for the Alaska Performance Scholarship (APS), Alaska Education Grant (AEG), and the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho (WWAMI) medical program. The intent of this lawsuit is to bring clarity and stability to the funding source of these three programs for Alaskan students pursuing higher education in the state of Alaska.
As it currently stands, your award for the 2021/22 academic year is secure and will be disbursed by ACPE according to eligibility guidelines for the spring semester. Additionally, the Governor has included funding for APS, AEG, and WWAMI in his budget proposal for the 2022-23 academic year.
ACPE is committed to supporting the funding of these awards for Alaskans and will continue to monitor the status of this lawsuit.
