Scholarship Application Open: January 20, 2022 - March 31, 2022

The Willard and Mary Jones Scholarship was established by Ron Inouye in memory of the late Willard and Mary Jones of Ketchikan. In the early 1970’s, the Joneses were mentors to Mr. Inouye who was teaching at the University of Alaska Ketchikan Campus at the time. It is Mr. Inouye’s intent that this scholarship serve the Ketchikan community and honor the Joneses legacy.

Please honor the memory of Willard and Mary Jones through your study and education: be welcoming, generous and share what you learn with others. This scholarship will award up to $1,000. 

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Applicants from Ketchikan may apply if studying at programs within Alaska.


  • Applicants enrolled at either the Totem Heritage Center in Ketchikan or the University of Alaska Ketchikan campus.
  • Students studying in the field of marine sciences

IMPORTANT: Successful applicants must submit their student ID number and program information by June 30, 2022 to ACF through the online system before their award can be disbursed. Failure to do so will be an automatic forfeiture of the award unless student chooses an award deferment.
