Summer is on its way – apply for a summer scholarship from Doyon Foundation
It may feel like winter will never end, but summer is on its way! Eligible students planning to attend school this summer are encouraged to apply for a summer basic scholarship from Doyon Foundation. Applications must be received by Friday, March 15 at 5 p.m.
Part-time students are eligible to receive an $800 basic scholarship and full-time students can receive a $1,200 basic scholarship.
Remember that Doyon Foundation basic scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so students are encouraged to apply early. Applications are only accepted via the Foundation’s online scholarship portal at www.doyonfoundation.com.
To be eligible for a Doyon Foundation scholarship, students must:
- Be enrolled to Doyon, Limited or be the child of an original enrollee
- Be accepted to an accredited college, university, technical or vocational school
- Meet minimum GPA requirements
- Be enrolled in the required minimum number of credits
To apply for a summer basic scholarship, applicants will need to submit:
- Basic scholarship online application
- Proof of academic enrollment (Summer class schedule, plus document showing current degree program and field of study)
Note that official transcripts only need to be submitted once per academic year (which runs August through July). “New” students (those who did not receive a fall 2018 or spring 2019 scholarship) need to submit official transcripts by the March 15 deadline. “Returning” students (those who received a fall 2018 or spring 2019 scholarship) can submit unofficial transcripts by May 10, 2019.
It is very important for students to log in to their student account before the scholarship application deadline to check that they have submitted all the required materials.
Students are also encouraged to review the Foundation’s scholarship resource handbook for all the details on transcripts, eligibility and application requirements. For assistance or more information, contact Doyon Foundation at email@example.com or 907-459-2048.
