Arctic Education Foundation (AEF) is a private, nonprofit organization committed to providing support and assistance to students pursuing higher education. AEF was established in 1977 by Arctic Slope Regional Corporation. AEF is governed by five committee members.
The goal of the foundation is to train Iñupiat students to enter the professional workforce prepared for any
job, especially those common to the North Slope region. Our programs are designed to empower our students and promote personal success within themselves and their community.
