Full-time students studying health-related fields have the opportunity to apply for a Doyon Foundation competitive scholarship for the spring 2022 semester! The competitive scholarships for the spring semester range from $3,500 for undergraduate students, to $4,500 for graduate students, to $5,500 to doctoral students.

Normally, competitive scholarship applications are only accepted once a year, in the fall for the academic year. However, thanks to a generous contribution from Tanana Chiefs Conference (TCC) and Doyon, Limited, we have sufficient funding to award additional competitive scholarships for health students going to school full-time in the spring semester!

Eligible students should submit a competitive scholarship application by the spring 2022 deadline on Monday, November 15, 2021, at 5 p.m. AKST. To be eligible, students 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
  • Be studying a health-related field
  • Be enrolled in the required minimum number of credits to be considered full-time students
  • Meet our minimum GPA requirements

See our scholarship resource handbook for details on eligibility, minimum GPA and credit requirements, and the application process.

These scholarships are funded by a $100,000 donation from TCC, matched by a $200,000 financial commitment from Doyon, Limited. With the expansion of TCC’s Chief Andrew Isaac Health Center set to open next year, and with the COVID-19 pandemic highlighting the need for an increase in the healthcare workforce, both organizations agree that supporting Alaska Native students in pursuing healthcare careers is a priority. Read more about TCC’s and Doyon’s contribution to the health scholarship fund on our blog.
