The Alaska WWAMI Biomedical Program provides Alaska residents with high-quality medical education not available in-state. The program is a collaboration among the universities in five northwestern states (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho) under the overarching administration of the University of Washington School of Medicine (UWSOM).
The Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education (ACPE) is the fiscal agent and servicer for these loans, funded by the State of Alaska. The loan funds cover the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition at the University of Washington for a participant's 2nd through 4th years in the program. The loan must be repaid upon program completion. The Alaska WWAMI loan is eligible for forgiveness, given the participant fulfills a service obligation in Alaska. Interest rates and loan limits are set annually, based on program costs.
