Scholarship Overview

Are you a college-bound, high school senior from Alaska who is planning to enroll full-time at a University of Alaska campus to pursue an undergraduate degree in the health sciences? If so, consider applying for the Dr. John Halligan Scholarship Fund! Each year, the scholarship awards $2,500 to one incoming undergraduate, health sciences student from Alaska who will be attending a University of Alaska campus. This scholarship was named in honor of Dr. John Halligan, who, after retiring from the military, fulfilled a decades-long dream and moved to Alaska to become the Medical Director of Radiation Oncology at Providence Alaska Medical Center. He has since expanded state-of-the-art cancer care in Alaska by opening Radiation Oncology Clinics in Soldotna, Juneau, and the MatSu Valley so Alaskans could receive care closer to their homes. If you wish to honor Dr. Halligan’s amazing legacy of healthcare in Alaska, we encourage you to apply! Keep on reading to learn more.
