Gana-A’Yoo Foundation and New AwardSpring Application Process
Gana-A’Yoo Foundation has begun using AwardSpring as an all-online scholarship application, processing, and awarding platform. Students will be required to submit their scholarship applications online at ganaayoo.awardspring.com. To account for the change, the General Scholarship and Competitive Scholarship deadline has been extended for a month from June 15, 2022, to July 29, 2022. The Spring 2023 deadline will remain the same on September 30, 2022.
Short Term and Vocational scholarships are still open year-round. There is a new option to apply for an Alyeska Alaska Native Program Scholarship, which will have an open application date of May 23, 2022, through December 15, 2022. Alyeska Alaska Native Program Scholarship applicants are required to be enrolled in oil and gas industry-related education or training fields.
For assistance or for any questions about the new process or for scholarship type eligibility, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and staff will address any questions, concerns, or provide assistance.
