The Joseph Neale Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to serve as a memorial to Joseph Neale, beloved son, brother, APU student and treasured friend to many who blessed the APU community with his presence. Founded by Joe’s family and friends, the fund will provide scholarship assistance to a student who represents Joe’s spirit and legacy.
The scholarship may be used for tuition, books and fees and can only be applied toward study at APU. One scholarship will be awarded each year. In honor of Joe, APU will match the amount to double the total scholarship award. Sophomore or higher majoring in OS, demonstrated financial need, active member of the APU community, participates in extra-curricular activities both on campus and throughout Anchorage/Alaska, demonstrates social responsibility and concern for others through his/her actions.
Awardee selected by the chair of the Outdoor Studies department and forwarded to John and Nancy Neale for final approval.
