Scholarship Program

Higher education is important for our survival as a sovereign nation. It is the weapon of today that ensures our future – once we armed with an education, we become stronger as a Nation. To support our vision and achieve our vision higher education is crucial. With this in mind our Higher Education program provides supplemental financial aid in the form of scholarships, $350 for part-time students and $700, for full-time students.

Recognizing that our Higher Education funding is supplemental in nature, tribal citizens are encouraged and expected to take advantage of institution sponsored financial aid programs and other sources of funding to assist with college costs.

Our Higher Education funds are not an entitlement nor are they a general welfare program anyone wishing to participate must meet the application requirements and provide all necessary documentation. Award consideration is based on the availability of funds, dates of receipt, completion of application.
