February 8, 2017

To: All Graduating Seniors

Re: All America City Scholarship

The City of Valdez is offering graduating seniors of Valdez High School who plan to pursue full-time higher education the opportunity to apply for the All America City Scholarship. In 2017, two All-America City scholarships, in the amount of $2,500 each, will be awarded.

The scholarship program was established in 1982 as a lasting reminder of the All America City honor awarded to the City of Valdez in 1965 and 1981.

The intent of the scholarship program is to encourage civic involvement among the youth of Valdez while encouraging them to continue their education.

Any student wishing to apply should complete the application package, which must include the following:

1. Personal letter of application
2. City 2017 All-America Scholarship application form
3. Three letters of reference relating to the student’s civic involvement
4. Official copy of the student’s Valdez High School Transcript
5. Copy of the student’s letter of acceptance or conditional acceptance to a college or university

Scholarship application packets are available on the City’s website, at Valdez City Hall and through the guidance counselor at Valdez High School.

Applications must be received in the Office of the City Clerk before 5:00 p.m. on Friday,
April 14, 2017. Applications should be delivered to Valdez City Hall or mailed to the following address:

City of Valdez All-America City Scholarship Committee
Attn: Deputy City Clerk
Valdez City Hall
P.O. Box 307
Valdez, Alaska 99686

The scholarship committee will review applications and select scholarship recipients. Awards will be presented at the Valdez High School graduation ceremony in May 2017.

For questions or concerns regarding the scholarship application process, please call (907) 834-3468 or email

Allie Ferko, CMC, Deputy City Clerk
