Scholarship Opportunity

scholarship badge imageThe Sitka Campus has scholarship opportunities available for different programmatic and demographic uses in supporting students. Any Sitka student wishing to be considered for these awards must fill out the UA Foundation scholarship application online. Students must be in good financial aid standing and have completed the FAFSA in most cases.

The website mentions a February deadline for this application to be considered for Foundation funds but Sitka Program students can apply year-round for campus foundation funds. Interested students should complete the application and contact Chris Washko, Student Success Manager, for more instructions or with questions.

Visual Guide to Citing Sources in MLA Format

Another great resource from The Visual Communication Guy!

Visual Guide to MLA Format

How It Works

Using the fan chart and by associating the numbers with the citation parts in the key to the right, you can cite nearly any source in MLA format. Here’s how:

1) Locate the type of source you are trying to cite within one of the four source categories: Books, Periodicals, Online Sources, or Other.
2) Identify the colored thread in the fan chart that is associated with your source.
3) Moving left to right in your source’s column of trapezoids, jot down each number.
4) Use the list below to match the number with the complete citation information for each number. Note: The punctuation in each numbered item is exactly as it should appear in your citation.
5) Fill out your citation in the proper order.
