Doyon Foundation wishes all of our fall 2017 scholarship recipients a very happy holiday season, and all the best in the coming school year.

We celebrated the 298 recipients at our 2017 fall scholarship award ceremony, held in September in Fairbanks. See photos from the event on our Facebook page.

At the ceremony, we awarded a total of $387,800 in scholarships. The fall 2017 awards included 36 competitive scholarships, 74 basic part-time scholarships, and 188 basic full-time scholarships.

The ceremony opened with a traditional prayer by Allan Hayton, the Foundation’s language revitalization program director. Foundation executive director, Doris Miller, then welcomed guests and introduced the alumna speaker, Tanya Kaquatosh, and student speaker, Julian Thibedeau.

Kaquatosh is a graduate of Arizona State University with a master’s in finance and international business, and Thibedeau is a freshman at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where he is in the rural human services program. Watch videos of the alumna and student speakers on our YouTube channel.

Maurine McGinty, the Foundation’s scholarship program manager, then introduced the fall 2017 scholarship recipients. Those in attendance had the opportunity to address the audience and share about themselves, their educational goals, and their appreciation for the support of the Foundation and its donors.

Doyon Foundation scholarships are available to Doyon, Limited shareholders or children of original enrollees who are accepted to an accredited school and who meet minimum GPA and credit requirements. The next scholarship application deadline is Thursday, March 15 for basic scholarships for the summer 2018 semester.
