The Alaska CHARR Education Fund awards scholarships once a year to Alaska residents who are interested in pursuing a career in the Alaskan hospitality industry. The deadline to submit scholarship applications to the CHARR office is May 15th.
The Charlie H. Selman Memorial Scholarship was created to honor the memory of Charlie Selman, long-time CHARR member and owner of the Club Paris in Anchorage, partner in the Double Musky in Girdwood and one of the original engineers to discover oil in Prudhoe Bay, AK.
This scholarship program is made possible by fundraising at our annual Charlie Selman Memorial Golf Tournament, participation by members who sell pulltabs on behalf of the Ed Fund and by personal and corporate contributions.
Qualifications for the Scholarship:
Applicant must be an Alaskan resident of at least two years duration prior to applying for the scholarship
Applicant must be accepted for admission to an accredited university or post-secondary vocational school
Applicant must plan to pursue a career in the Alaska hospitality industry
