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.

Boozhoo, I am a Ojibwe Native American from the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation. I am 21, attending community college full time, trying to get a job, starting counseling.

For now I'm without a vehicle, and stay with my father, brother and cousins. I graduated GED in november, after having tried alternative school with on success.

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.

I'm chippewa and my gpa is an 3.6 right now and my cumulative gpa is a 2.6.

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!

Schools Offering Tuition Discounts This Fall

August 14, 2020

by Izzy Hall

The coronavirus pandemic has affected nearly everything about college – and for some schools, that includes tuition. Beyond tuition freezes or removing application fees, these colleges have gone one step further in reducing costs for their students. A tuition discount recognizes not only the economic difficulties many students and their families are facing due to COVID-19, but also acknowledges that mostly or entirely online classes are generally not perceived as being worth the same amount of money as a full residential college experience. Some of these institutions also plan to offer additional scholarship funding to the students who need it most. [...]

Earlier this summer, the Big Ten Conference announced they would be playing only in-conference football games if the Fall 2020 football season went ahead. But last week, they and the Pac-12 conference both announced that Fall 2020 athletics would be cancelled due to concerns about student athlete safety. Meanwhile, their brethren Power 5 conferences to the South – The Atlantic Coast, Big 12 and Southeastern conferences – have decided to go ahead with the Fall 2020 football season. [...]

Student-Run Food Banks Making a Difference on Campus

August 11, 2020

by Izzy Hall

You may be surprised to learn that many of your fellow college students struggle with hunger. About 1 in 5 students are affected by food insecurity. In a normal time, not getting enough to eat can impact students’ grades, health and ability to finish their degrees. And a loss of campus jobs, housing and meal plans due to the pandemic puts more students in danger of going without the food they need. That’s where student-run food banks and pantries come in. [...]
