Preparing Indigenous Teachers and Administrators for Alaska Schools, a scholarship program through the University of Alaska Southeast, is designed to help Alaska Natives earn a degree in education.
PITAAS’s goal is to have more Alaska Native Teachers and administrators in Alaskans schools. As it stands, Alaska Natives make up 25 percent of the student body and less than five percent of the teaching force according to UAS.
Eligible students are Alaska Native students with junior or senior standing enrolled in undergraduate Teacher Preparation Programs, post graduate Teacher Certification Programs, Graduate Certificates, Endorsements and Master of Education (M.Ed.) Programs.
