*Verifying your School’s Financial Aid Address*

This is a friendly reminder to Doyon Foundation scholarship applicants. As you apply online at, please make sure you are selecting the correct school with the correct financial aid address from the drop down menu. Some universities have several different campuses and therefore have different financial aid offices. If your school is not listed on the drop down menu, you have the option of selecting “Other” where you can enter a new school’s name and address. Once the application is submitted, our office is sent a “new school” email. The school’s accreditation is then verified and added it to the website. If a student transfers to a new university after the application is submitted, they must notify our office immediately and submit a new Proof of Academic Enrollment.

This is an important step in your application process! When an award is mailed to the financial aid office, we cannot reissue another award to the same student for the same scholarship period until the check is returned. This could take weeks.

All students should review our scholarship program guidelines located online.  If you have questions, feel free to contact the Scholarship Program at or 907-459-2049. Thank you.
