Forty-Ninth State Fellows Program

Endowment for a full-time coordinator, summer travel, student scholarships, and Polaris lectures for The Forty-Ninth State Fellows Program.

Founded in 2005, The Forty-Ninth State Fellows Program within the UAA Honors College gives up to 60 of the university's most talented students a comprehensive education in America's founding principles. The goal is to build leaders with a deep knowledge of the history, statesmen, and traditions that created both the United States and the dynamic state of Alaska. The Fellows form a community of scholars during their university years. The program consists of three elements 1.* a rigorous foundational curriculum with a focus on history, economics, and political ideas, combined with additional readings, tutorials, and seminars; 2.* travel study, including a Pilgrimage to Washington D.C. and the east coast in their freshman year, a Sojourn to rural Alaska in their sophomore year, and an Odyssey abroad in their junior year; and 3.* social and cultural enrichment, including weekly meetings with faculty and visitng guest lecturers and memberships in civic organizations.
