KEF Eligibility Requirements

KEF offers merit-based scholarships to Koniag, Incorporated shareholders and descendants. Awards may vary depending on availability of funds. GPA requirements vary by award and must be met to be considered eligible for award. Applications must be postmarked or time-stamped by the posted deadline. Awarded funds are disbursed directly to the program, and cannot be applied to accounts in arrears.

Special Scholarships have additional requirements for field of study which must be met. Scholarships administered on behalf of our partners have additional eligibility requirements which are detailed in the description of each award.

All applicants must be Koniag, Incorporated shareholders or descendants. Descendants must have an approved shareholder descendant database application submitted and approved by Koniag, Incorporated’s Shareholder Records Manager prior to any disbursement of award. Please see form for details. For more information regarding the Descendant Database Form and enrollment shareholder ID’s, please e-mail shareholderrecords(at)koniag.com or call (800) 658-3818.

The Shareholder Descendant Database Application can be found here.

Because KEF is a private nonprofit, IRS regulations require that all scholarship and career development funds must be mailed directly to the institute where training is taking place.
