Tribal or BIA Higher Education Scholarship Grants Eligibility

Tribal or BIA Higher Education Scholarship Grants Eligibility

These grants are made available to Native American students with a Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood (CDIB) card.

Each tribal or BIA agency has its own policies and procedures in regard to its scholarship program(s). Agency listings are available in the counselorís office.

Grants are available to students who have a Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood (CDIB) issued to them by their tribal (BIA) agency. Applicants must be accepted or enrolled in an accredited college or university and should complete a Financial Aid packet as soon after January as possible for the next academic year. These funds are considered to be supplemental in nature. That is, each applicant will strive to obtain financial support from other sources in combination with tribal or BIA Higher Education Scholarship Grants. Grants are based on financial need or PELL eligibility.

Students who withdraw, whether officially or unofficially, may be suspended from the scholarship grant program(s), unless they can show just cause why this action should not be taken. (Check with the funding agency on its policy. Some are more rigid than others).

Scholarships or grants are not automatically renewed. Each should be renewed shortly after January 1 for the next academic year. (Check with the appropriate agency for deadlines. There may be variations.)  Cooperative linkage with tribal and BIA agencies, and rapport with administrators, faculty and staff, ensure complete services to Native American students.

Note: Every effort is made to accurately describe programs, services, requirements, and costs. The university reserves the right to make changes and alterations in any of these areas as the need arises. Some of the programs and courses may be pending approval by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. For up-to-date information, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
