The Chahta Foundation connects students with funding from the Chahta Foundation, Choctaw Nation and third party organizations that help cover college expenses. To be eligible for the Chahta Foundation Scholarships, applicants must: be a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma; be currently admitted, enrolled or planning to enroll at a college or university for the upcoming fall semester; and carry a 2.5 GPA or higher for both graduating high school seniors and current college/university students. Individual scholarships may have additional criteria. Dollar amounts will vary. Applications run from mid-January until the due date.
The Chahta Foundation works to empower the next generation with information through education. Every project is designed to produce high-impact initiatives that bring positive change to the Choctaw community. And every initiative is designed to both educate and evolve with our people to improve the overall well-being of Choctaw Nation citizens. Inspired by the constant evolution and determination of the Choctaw people, we work to keep tradition and knowledge flowing through impactful initiatives, including financial aid.
