UIC Foundation Inc.

Dear UIC Foundation Students,

On April 17, 2018 the UIC Foundation Board of Directors decided to suspend the scholarship program until further notice. The decision to suspend the program was difficult, but necessary, while UIC and the UIC Foundation continue taking steps to improve efficient business operations. Nonetheless, UIC and the UIC Foundation remains committed to supporting our students through the UIC Foundation Scholarship Program and will work diligently to make the program available next year. Once the program reopens, we will send out a notification and students will be able to apply for scholarships. If you have any questions, please contact me at 907-852-7057 or Mary.Patkotak@uicalaska.com. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Sincerely,

Mary Patkotak, UIC Foundation Manager
