KRUA Volunteer Application



Are you a student thinking about volunteering at KRUA? 

Volunteering can include, but is not limited to: screening music for rotation, production work, hosting a live or pre-recorded show, assisting with promotional events, and assisting our news team.

Regardless of your skill in radio, broadcasting, or communications, KRUA will train you for any position you may be interested in. Some volunteer work, like hosting a show, requires more training than screening music for our news director, but we will work with you regardless of
your experience.

Any student who is enrolled in 3 credits ore more, has a 2.0 or higher cumulative grade point average, and is in good academic standing can volunteer their time at KRUA.

What kind of time commitment is involved?  While this will vary based on what you want to do at KRUA, all of our positions are very flexible. While a DJ may produce and host a weekly show, promotional event volunteers may only be needed a handful of times a semester.

Why volunteer at KRUA?  The opportunity to shape KRUA's direction and sound by sharing your passion for music or radio with UAA, the Anchorage community, and the world.

  • Access to hordes of new and different music.
  • A chance to explore a field outside or major. 
  • Volunteering is also a great resume builder.
  • Semi-annual scholarship opportunities for active student volunteers.
