Doyon Foundation is in the final stages of finalizing its new online scholarship application process, and the new application portal will be available soon. Due to the new application process, the Foundation has extended the spring 2018 scholarship application deadline to Monday, December 11 at 5 p.m. AKST.

As soon as the new portal is available, the Foundation will make an announcement on its website, blog and Facebook page. Current students will also be contacted via email with instructions on logging into the new portal and completing the application process.

Applicants will find the new system to offer a more streamlined, user-friendly experience. For example, through the new system, students will receive automatic reminders of upcoming deadlines and items needed to complete their applications. Letters of recommendation can also be uploaded directly to the scholarship portal. The new system will also offer better scholarship reporting and management for Foundation staff.

“We chose this new system because it has a simple, intuitive design and is easy to understand and navigate,” said Doris Miller, the Foundation executive director. “Our hope is that it will make applying for scholarships even easier for our students.”
