Foundation to Roll Out New Online Scholarship Application Process
Doyon Foundation will soon roll out a new streamlined, user-friendly online scholarship application process. Students will use the new application system starting with the spring 2018 application deadline; scholarship applications are due Wednesday, November 15 for basic scholarships for the spring 2018 semester.
Scholarship applications are not currently being accepted as the Foundation transitions from the previous system to the new one. The previous scholarship portal on the Foundation website is no longer accessible as the Foundation transfers scholarship data to the new system.
While the exact launch date is unknown, the new portal is expected to be available in the next few weeks. Students will be contacted directly with details on accessing and using the new system.
Applicants will find the new system to offer a more streamlined, user-friendly experience. For example, through the new system, students will receive automatic reminders of upcoming deadlines and items needed to complete their applications. Letters of recommendation can also be uploaded directly to the scholarship portal. The new system will also offer better scholarship reporting and management for Foundation staff.
“We chose this new system because it has a simple, intuitive design and is easy to understand and navigate,” said Doris Miller, the Foundation executive director. “Our hope is that it will make applying for scholarships even easier for our students.”
