ANSEP™ is the most successful and cost effective STEM education program in the nation.

ANSEP has evolved into a longitudinal education model that provides a continuous string of components beginning with students in sixth grade and on through high school, into science and engineering undergraduate degree programs and through graduate school to the PhD. 

Students who start in ANSEP in middle school or early in high school can earn the full Alaska Performance Scholarship regardless of where they live.
