SUBJ/ALASKA SEA SERVICES SCHOLARSHIP FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2013-2014//



RMKS/1.  THIS NAVADMIN SOLICITS APPLICATIONS FOR THE ANNUAL ALASKA SEA 
SERVICES SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM.  THE ALASKA SEA SERVICES SCHOLARSHIP ANNUALLY

2.  BACKGROUND.  CITIZENS OF ALASKA RAISED FUNDS FOR A $10,000 WAR BOND AS A 
GIFT TO THE USS JUNEAU (CL 52) DURING WORLD WAR II.  AFTER THE SINKING OF THE 
USS JUNEAU, THIS GIFT WAS TO HAVE BEEN PRESENTED TO THE USS ALASKA (CB 1), BUT 
THE USS ALASKA WAS DECOMMISSIONED BEFORE THE PRESENTATION.  CONSEQUENTLY, THE 
GOVERNOR OF THE TERRITORY OF ALASKA AND THE SECRETARY OF THE NAVY AGREED THAT 
THE BOND WOULD BE LEFT ON DEPOSIT IN THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF JUNEAU UNTIL 
THE USS ALASKA WAS RECOMMISSIONED OR ANOTHER APPROPRIATE APPLICATION COULD BE 
FOUND.  IN 1986, THE NAVY ESTABLISHED THE ALASKA SEA SERVICES SCHOLARSHIP 
FUND.

4.  SELECTION.  A SELECTION BOARD WILL BE HELD BY THE NAVY LEAGUE FOUNDATION.  
THE SELECTED NOMINEE PACKAGES WILL THEN BE SUBMITTED TO NAVAL EDUCATION AND 
TRAINING COMMAND FOR FINAL APPROVAL, AFTER WHICH SELECTEES WILL BE NOTIFIED 
AND SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS WILL BE DISBURSED TO THE APPROPRIATE ACADEMIC
