KEF offers merit-based scholarships to Koniag Shareholders and registered Descendants who are pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree through an accredited educational institution. These scholarships are competitive and are scored by an independent scholarship review committee. While all eligible applicants will receive funds, the applicants with the highest scores, will receive the highest amounts. Each portion of the application has a point value, including the students’ GPA, therefore it is important to put forth maximum effort into the application.
The Godfrey, Parsons, Matfay, & Drabek scholarships will be awarded to the students with the highest application points in each specified major. Please note that students who do not declare a major on the application will not be considered for these special scholarships. KEF is a private nonprofit and the IRS regulations require that all scholarship funds must be disbursed directly to the university and cannot be applied to accounts in arrears (past due). Must be a Koniag Shareholder or registered Descendant (may be adopted). If not a registered Descendant, applicant must submit a Shareholder Descendant application and be approved by Koniag Shareholder Records prior to any disbursement of award. Must meet the GPA requirement which vary by award. Must be in good standing with KEF’s other scholarship programs (e.g., provide transcripts and/or proof of completion as required).
