Alaska 529 is excited to introduce the Colan family of Miami, Florida, as the selected recipient of the $20,000 scholarship. The Colan family will be able to use the scholarship funds for qualified education expenses at any eligible college, university, vocational or technical school, increasing their options when it comes time to choose an education path. "To learn that we'll be receiving this scholarship just as our oldest is in the midst of college applications was fantastic icing on the cake," said Dr. Lori Colan.
