I think I would benefit this scholarship. I am a full blood Native American from Arizona and is planning on attending the University of Arizona. I am determined to get my bachelor's with Behavioral and Social Sciences and with that degree, pursue my law degree. My law degree will be with family law. After pursuing my law degree, I plan to work with the Navajo Nation and help my people out with what I know from school.

I have not yet applied for a scholarship. I am enrolling at Northern Michigan University in the fall of 2020. My major will be in Native American Studies with a minor in Digital Design. What opportunities are available to me in respect to grants available in my area of interest? Are there scholarships available for me?

I would really benefit from this scholarship because I'm paying for all of my college fees and living. I'm not coming from a family of wealth but a family who always fights over money and how to use it, my mother is in debt and because of this my dad has to pay all the bills including groceries, sometimes it gets bad enough to where I have to pitch in and help buy groceries. This scholarship would really help me out. thank you.
