Shodah, I'am a Crow Native From Wyola, Montana. I am going to graduate in May with a GPAQ of 2.9, because of my constant struggles of fitting in and our poverty levels here ion the reservation. The tribe here as we know it no longer has the federal funding to help individuals because of political reasons and it leaves us people trying to go above and beyond depending on what we relied on as our main resources, to not being able to rely on them for financial obligation to asking for help in anyway possible to be successful in the outside world to receive higher education and come back to my reservation to help my people who struggle just like all of us here.

Hello, I am a Cherokee Native American from Northern Chicago. I am nearly a quarter Cherokee, and my grandmother's grandmother was on the trail of tears and I am hoping to find a scholarship that will aid me in attending the college i want to go to. I have a good GPA of around 3.5. My parents are too ashamed to help me look for the scholarship, but any money would help.

Halito, I am a Choctaw native American. I am attending nursing school full time and a wife and mother to 2 beautiful kids. I cannot work while attending school full time and juggling studying and home life. I would be forever grateful for any additional help. I have a 3.77 GPA and my goal is to be a labor and delivery nurse.

I am a senior with a 1.7 GPA because bullying and depression, which pulled me away from learning and coming to school. Today, I'm doing my best to catch up and get great education. I only have one parent who is supporting me- out of the 5 siblings, i'll be the 2nd to go to college. This scholarship will help me work harder than before, I've came a long way to achieve everything today and for the future. This will open doors knowing that anything is possible and i could still be an attorney in American Indian Law

I only have a 2.0 GPA because my medical situation has followed me, post-secondary education and unfortunately effected attendance. This scholarship isn't to pay my way so I can work only as hard as allowed, but so my parents don't have to help pay out of pocket for my schooling as well as hospital and doctor bills. This scholarship will prove that I'm more than my GPA, and that there's opportunity everywhere is you're willing to go the distance. Thank You!

I’m a junior in high school student as well as a college student with a 3.8 GPA. I will graduate with an Associate degree in science and soon continue to get my Masters. I applied for the scholarship because it’s never to early to get one to help me in the future. I want to go to Duke University so I can be a Doctor. With this scholarship it will help along the way of the process and the money needed to be a Doctor.

I am Muscogee (Creek) with a GPA of 4.0, which I have maintained throughout high school. I have been admitted to attend Oklahoma State University and accepted to the pre-Veterinarian Program. This scholarship would greatly assist my family's ability to afford to send me to such a wonderful college. I am planning on working to help pay for my college but this award would likely allow me to focus more time on my educational goals. Thank you for your consideration and for the offering of this assistance.

This scholarship will help me out greatly because I am a hard worker and I will work very hard in college. Thank you for your time. Have a great day!

Will You Pay Tax on Your Scholarships?

June 5, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Scholarships are free money to go to college… right? The majority of the time, that holds true. But there are times where students may have to pay taxes on scholarship funds. While normally tax-free, the IRS states that if scholarship funds are used for “incidental expenses” like housing, transportation or meal plans, those funds must be included in a student’s gross income statement. Even scholarships intended to be used for room and board or for meal plans at school must be reported. [...]

May 27, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Across the country, both private and public institutions of higher education have announced that they will be test-optional for students applying to enter school in the fall of 2021. This policy, instituted as a response to coronavirus cancellations of standardized testing dates, comes with the caveat that it would only exist during next year’s round of admissions. But the University of California system has gone in an entirely different direction by announcing that will no longer require the SAT or ACT for all California state applicants. [...]
