The Alaska Native Science & Engineering Program


ANSEP students can go from eighth grade to Bachelor's degree in six years with Acceleration Academy!

ANSEP’s objective is to effect systemic change in the hiring patterns of Alaska Natives in science and engineering by placing our students on a career path to leadership.

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

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

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.
