Each Day Scholar who attended an Indian Residential School during the day only (but did not sleep there overnight) is eligible to apply for a $10,000 Day Scholar Compensation Payment. A list of IRSs that had or might have had Day Scholars can be found at https://www.justicefordayscholars.com/schools-lists/
The full list is divided into two: List 1, which includes IRSs confirmed to have had Day Scholars; and List 2, which includes IRSs not known to have had Day Scholars.
To be eligible, you must have attended during the school opening and school closing or transfer dates stated on the Schedule E list. If you attended an IRS before or after these dates, this means you are not eligible for this settlement and should not apply. If you attended a school listed on Schedule E after the transfer date, you may have been included in the Federal Indian Day School Class Action: https://indiandayschools.com/en/
In cases where a Day Scholar has died on or after May 30, 2005, a claim can be submitted on behalf of a deceased Day Scholar by the estate Executor/Administrator/Trustee/Liquidator, or if there is no estate Executor/Administrator/Trustee/Liquidator, the highest priority living heir.
Survivor and Descendant Class Members (the natural or adopted children of Survivor Class Members) are also eligible to apply for funding from the Day Scholars Revitalization Fund to support healing, wellness, education, language, culture, and commemoration. More information can be found in Schedule F.
