BSNC Descendants

BSNC Descendants

Did you know that BSNC descendants receive many of the same benefits as BSNC shareholders?

Bering Straits Native Corporation invites descendants to register their information to receive important news and information about descendant benefits. Submitted information will be kept confidential and will only be used for BSNC and Bering Straits Foundation purposes.

WHO?

The BSNC descendant registry is for a lineal descendant (e.g., child, grandchild, great-grandchild, etc.) or adoptee of a BSNC shareholder. Descendants who are already BSNC shareholders do not need to register.

DESCENDANT BENEFITS

Scholarships from the Bering Straits Foundation
Hiring and employment preference
Summer Internship Program
Recreational and subsistence land use
Bereavement assistance

HOW TO REGISTER

To register, descendants must submit a completed registration form and a copy of the state-issued birth certificate or adoption decree establishing the relationship to a BSNC shareholder. If the descendant’s name differs from the name on the birth certificate, or if the shareholder’s name on the descendant’s birth certificate is different from the name BSNC has on file, copies of the legal document(s) substantiating the name change are also required (e.g., a marriage certificate, divorce decree, adoption decree or other legal document). In some cases, it may be necessary to provide additional documents to demonstrate lineal descent.

Descendants may review, update or remove their personal information by emailing descendants@beringstraits.com.
