I'm enrolled with Rosebud Sioux Tribe. This scholarship will help me pay for tuition, books and living expenses. I have a single income working on my Human Services Degree in Chemical Dependency. To help native American people with their struggle with substance abuse.

Hi! My name is Rayya Cao and I’m a direct descendant from the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, the only federally recognized tribe in the state of Alabama located in Poarch, AL. I’m also a current high senior at Petal High School located in Petal, MS. I’m involved with my school’s CTE (Career Technical Education) Sport Medicine I & II course. The past 2 years of being in sports medicine has taught me how to properly care for athletes while giving them the best treatment they can receive to get back to what they love doing best. During my experience in Sports Medicine, I’ve been certified in the American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR AED Program, which gave me the opportunity to see first hand in a life crisis on what to do and how to properly save a person’s life. I’ve traveled to Washington D.C. for the past 2 years to represent my tribe to discuss current issues on what’s going on with Native Americans, rights and responsibilities of dual citizenships, and the complex relationship between tribal nations and the federal government. During my experience in Washington, DC, I’ve met with tribal leaders and the USET (United South and Eastern Tribes Inc) Council, I’ve gotten a authentic look at the American political system. I’ve learned to examine historical tensions between native nations and the U.S. federal government while exploring Washington’s famous monuments, memorials, and institutions. My experience in our nation’s capital also taught me good leadership and social skills while developing and presenting a Tribal Action Initiative after speaking with experts about issues facing Indian Country today.

University to Give New Students Free Laptops for Filing the FAFSA

April 6, 2021

by Izzy Hall

The coronavirus made laptops a necessity for college students. Where before students without personal computers or laptops could use on-campus computers and provided software to meet the technological needs of their courses, the shift last spring to online classes necessitated that students have a stable internet connection and a compatible device. While the majority of students were able to meet this requirement, according to a study by EDUCASE, some students found themselves without a modern laptop that could run the most up-to-date browser, use RAM-heavy software or keep up even with reliable high-speed Wi-Fi. One university has announced a unique remedy for this technical situation. [...]

March 31, 2021

by Izzy Hall

When students hear back from colleges in the coming weeks, they may not get a firm acceptance or rejection, but rather get put on the wait list. Getting waitlisted is a normal part of the college admissions process, but some experts say that this year the wait list could turn into the longest it has ever been.
