We’re giving away 20 laptops to Foundation students!

With the shift to virtual work, classes and social interaction over the past year, computer and online access is more important than ever. At Doyon Foundation, we know this can cause hardship for students who do not have easy access to these resources. 

In an effort to support our students in a comprehensive way, we are pleased to launch our computer gifting program! Thanks to the generosity of donors designDATA and the Google American Indian Network, we have a pool of Lenovo ThinkPads to gift to students at no cost, to help them succeed in their educational journeys.

To be eligible to receive a computer, applicants must:

  • Be enrolled to Doyon, Limited, or the child of an original enrollee.
  • Be accepted to an accredited college, university, technical or vocational school.
  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.0 (undergraduates), 3.0 (graduate/master’s) or 3.25 (specialists/doctorates).
  • Have applied or been awarded a Doyon Foundation scholarship in the past.

This program is need-based. Students who do not currently have access to a computer, and need one to pursue their educational goals, are invited to complete our online student computer need survey. Students who cannot access the online form may contact us at 907.459.2049 or scholarships@doyon.com and a Foundation staff member can complete the online form by proxy.

The deadline to complete the computer need survey is Friday, August 27, at 5 p.m. We will then review the submissions and eligible students will be entered into a random drawing to receive one of 20 Lenovo ThinkPads.

We will announce the computer recipients during our scholarship award recognition presentation, which will take place virtually on Friday, September 10. Watch the Foundation website and social media for more details on the event, or sign up for our email updates to receive the latest news.  

Remember – complete the computer need survey online by Friday, August 27, at 5 p.m. If you have questions or need help completing the form by proxy, contact us at 907.459.2049 or scholarships@doyon.com.
