The Sault Tribe Higher Education Grant is for Sault Tribe members attending a Michigan state-supported two- or four-year college or university full-time (12 credit hours or more). Grants are based on unmet financial need as determined by the individual college in which the student is enrolled. Applicants must be attending a Michigan state-supported two- or four-year college or university, be enrolled full-time (12 credit hours or more), be an undergraduate student and must have completed the FAFSA form at their college's financial aid office. Students must maintain full-time enrollment (12 credit hours or more per undergrad) and a 2.5 GPA. Dollar amounts will vary.
All applications must include the following information: a completed Higher Education Grant Application (Unmet Needs); a signed W-9 form; a current copy of the student’s tribal card; and a Grant Assistance Form, completed by the college or university. The Higher Education Grant Application can be submitted by email or physically mailed in. The deadlines are either August or September, depending on whether you are applying for the regular grant or the unmet-need grant. Application deadlines will vary, depending on which financial assistance is being applied for.
