Scholarship Description

The intent of the Indian Scholarship Program is to assist Native American students in obtaining a basic college education. To that end, priority in making awards will be given to undergraduate full-time students. In order to provide a reward as well as an incentive to students with high academic achievements, those applicants with a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or above, shall be given priority in funding. Grants may range from $700 to $2,000 depending on scholastic ability, funds available, total number of applicants, and financial need.

1. Applicants must be an enrolled member of a federally recognized Indian tribe and a resident of North Dakota. Residency for each student shall be determined by the institution that student is attending.
2. All applicants must have been accepted for admission at an institution of higher learning or state vocational education program within North Dakota.
3. Scholarship recipients must be enrolled full-time and may not have a grade point average below 2.00.
4. Students participating in internships, student teaching, teaching assistance, or cooperative education programs may be eligible for a scholarship award only if participation in that program is required for the degree and only if tuition must be paid for the credits earned
