The Alaska Direct Financial Aid to Students Amendment ballot question was on the November 2, 1976 statewide general election ballot in Alaska as a proposed legislatively-referred constitutional amendment to the Alaska Constitution, where it was defeated.

The ballot summary said, "This is a proposal to amend Article VII, Section 1 of the Constitution of the State of Alaska to allow public funds to be used to provide direct aid such as scholarships and tuition equalization grants to students attending private educational institutions. The Attorney General of the State of Alaska has interpreted Article VII, Section 1 of the Constitution, as it now reads, to prohibit the State from giving tuition equilization grants to students attending private colleges or universities in the State."
