Spike Jorgensen Memorial Scholarship

The Spike Jorgensen Scholarship is established in recognition of Mr. Jorgensen and his life-long commitment to Alaska’s children as an advocate for their educational success.

Annually, the Citizens for the Educational Advancement of Alaska’s Children (CEAAC) will award two scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each to two deserving graduating seniors that reflect the need for financial assistance to further their academic goals from Alaska school districts that are members of CEAAC as of January 1 of the year of the award (a list of member districts is at the end of this document). One scholarship is reserved for a deserving student from a CEAAC member district village that has a population of less than 1,000 residents. Only one new scholarship may be awarded per school district in any given year.

Scholarships are awarded based on the judgment of the selection committee that a student shows high achievement in the context in which he or she was educated, with an emphasis on rewarding success in schools that face challenges, and that the student expresses positive and meaningful educational goals. The Jorgensen Scholarship may be renewed by a student recipient to support up to four consecutive years of a post-secondary career if all requirements are met on an annual basis, without a break (see “Terms and Conditions,” attached). Renewal requires full-time student status and at least a 2.5 GPA (where applicable).

Changes to the Jorgensen Scholarship program are at the sole discretion of the CEAAC Board of Directors, which reserves the right to cancel the program for any reason, including any scholarship renewals, at any time, without notice.


* High School graduate or GED Equivalent.

* 2.5 + GPA
