Native American Student Scholarships

For a student to be eligible for many Native American scholarships the student should be an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe, otherwise funding will most likely be denied. A Certificate of Indian Blood (CIB) card or document is generally accepted proof of membership in a federally recognized tribe.


American Indian College Fund
Daughters of the American Revolution American Indian Scholarship Fund
Indian Health Service

Tribal Offices
Another good source of financial aid is the student’s tribe. Some tribes have scholarships for their members, although the awards are usually for very small amounts. Very often if a student does not qualify for a BIA/OIEP grant, the tribe will award a “tribal” scholarship. Each tribe handles its own funding differently, with different award amounts and deadlines, so it is best to contact the tribe directly.
