The 2019 graduates of the Rural Alaska Honors Institute gather at UAF.

The Rural Alaska Honors Institute hosted a graduation ceremony at 1 p.m., July 11, at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Fifty rural and Alaska Native high school students, representing more than 30 communities across the state, graduated after six weeks of academics and on-campus living at UAF this year. They explored fields such as writing, library sciences, process technology, chemistry, business, math, recreation and, for the first time ever, Alaska Native languages. Six students also gained hands-on experience working on two different projects with UAF researchers.

Since its inception in 1983, RAHI has prepared more than 1,950 students for the rigors of higher education. Graduates have gone on to obtain 929 degrees and 187 certificates from not only from the University of Alaska but also other institutions such as Harvard, Yale and Brown universities, Dartmouth College and the universities of Notre Dame and California, Berkeley.
