Alaska CU league provides scholarships for business simulation
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (6/16/14)--Sixteen high school students will receive a crash course on corporate life this summer thanks to the Alaska Credit Union League, which has provided scholarship funds as part of Alaska Business Week ( Anchorage Daily News June 12).

The league has sponsored the event since 2010.

"Alaska Business Week is a unique opportunity for high school students to learn the basic principles of private sector business and develop their leadership skills," said league Chair Lauren MacVay.

Starting in late July, students will spend a week on the University of Alaska-Fairbanks' campus, living in dorms, getting a feel for college life and receiving college credit.

There, the students will experience a simulated corporate business environment, learn how to build teams and gain valuable leadership and life skills. Students also will compete in teams in various business challenges.

Alaska business professionals will serve as advisers. Registration is open to all Alaska high school students.
