GCI to award $100,000 in scholarships to Alaska students

50 Alaska students will each receive a $2,000 scholarship for 2019-20 academic year

ANCHORAGE, AlaskaAs part of its effort to help cultivate Alaska’s next generation of leaders, GCI has committed $100,000 to the next round of its statewide scholarship program. Fifty students will each receive a $2,000 scholarship for the 2019-20 academic year. Funds from the GCI Scholarship Program can be used for tuition and books.

Over the past 20 years, GCI has awarded over $6 million in scholarship funds to hundreds of Alaska students attending accredited colleges and vocational/trade schools.

“Whether through universities or vocational schools, the continuing education of Alaska’s workforce is not only crucial for the future of GCI, but Alaska as a whole,” said Joe Wahl, GCI Chief Human Resources Officer. “Through this scholarship program, we hope more Alaskan students can get access to more educational opportunities, so the state can retain a competitive workforce that allows industry to grow and the economy to thrive.”

The GCI scholarship application includes information about the student’s academic and work history, a short essay question, and a brief questionnaire to be filled out by the student’s high school or college counselor or advisor, an instructor, or a work supervisor.

The application period opens Feb. 7, 2019. Applications must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. AKST on April 11, 2019.

GCI is committed to giving back to the communities we serve. Over the past 5 years, GCI has donated more than $10 million in cash, products, scholarships and grants to Alaska organizations. GCI also provides employees with 16 hours of paid leave to volunteer with local organizations. In 2018, more than 660 GCI employees volunteered nearly 8,200 hours.

As the Doyon Foundation office will be closed on Friday, March 15 for the Doyon, Limited annual meeting, we have extended the deadline to apply for our summer basic scholarships. The extended deadline to submit applications for summer scholarships is Tuesday, March 19, 2019, 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. To be considered part-time, students must be enrolled in 3 to 11 credits (or 2 to 8 credits for graduate students). Full-time students are those enrolled in 12 or more credits (9 or more credits for graduate students).

Remember that our basic scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so get your application in as soon as possible!

To be eligible for a Doyon Foundation scholarship, you 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 our minimum GPA requirements
  • Be enrolled in the required minimum number of credits

Students must apply through our online scholarship portal, available on our website. First time using the new system? See our step-by-step instructions on how to create a new account. Questions on the application process? Check out our tutorial on how to apply for a scholarship.

To apply for a summer basic scholarship, you 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
  • Transcripts (keep reading – more on this below!)

DF_95_General Transcripts Infographic_v1We always get a lot of questions about transcripts: Do I need to submit them? Do they need to be official or unofficial? What is the deadline? Here’s what you need to know:

  • Official transcripts only need to be submitted once per academic year (which runs August through July).
  • If you’re a “new” student (in other words, you didn’t receive a fall 2018 or spring 2019 scholarship), then you need to submit official transcripts by the March 19 deadline.
  • If you’re a “returning” student (meaning you received a fall 2018 or spring 2019 scholarship), you can submit unofficial transcripts. We know you won’t have transcripts for the spring semester by March 19, so the deadline for you to submit them is May 10, 2019.

Already submitted your application? It is very important to log in to your student account before the scholarship application deadline to check that you have submitted all the required materials.

We also encourage you to review our scholarship resource handbook for all the details on transcripts, eligibility and application requirements. You are also welcome to give us a call or send us an email anytime – we are here to help!

Remember – the deadline to apply for a summer 2019 basic scholarship has been extended to Tuesday, March 19! If you have questions, contact us at foundation@doyon.com or 907.459.2048.
