To everyone here in Bethel, across the Yukon/Kuskokwim Delta and around our state, whether you gave to KYUK, Alaska Public Media or another public media outlet, thank you for contributing!  You are the reason we are still standing, strong, proud and in partnership with you to make our communities successful.

 

THANK YOU!

If you are a collage student from any community within the KYUK listening area in the Yukon/Kuskokwim Delta or Bethel apply now for the Alexie Isaac Memorial Scholarship.    If you know a college student from the YK Delta or Bethel encourage him or her to apply now.  College is expensive and the Alexie Isaac scholarship can help you pay for school.

Once again this year,  thanks to the generosity of our listeners during our Spring Fund Drive, we are able to offer three $1,000 scholarships.  That means three students will be eligible to receive a $1,000 for their school year’s expenses.

The Bethel Broadcasting Inc board of directors makes the selections of scholarship winners at the September board meeting.

The deadline to apply is August 1st and while that date may seem far away it’s only about four months from now and the time will fly by fast.

Information and application forms can be found on the  Scholarship page of the KYUK website.  The application forms can also be requested by calling 543-3131 between 8am and 5pm Monday through Friday.

Don’t delay, apply today!
