    I have a granddaughter who wants to go college, but seems to stand at distance with any scholorships. So send me information were she can get a scholorship right now. And a son of my who wants to finish his upper graduate shcool.

    • Liberty says:

      To look I would suggest go to Fastweb.com and register. Your granddaughter will find plenty of scholorships. Also with your son he too can do the same exact thing. Wish you all the best of many blessing 🙂

    • Kaylosguy says:

      Are you a registered member of a tribe that offers a scholarship? My tribe offers any member going to college up to $2000/semester. I would have never gotten through school without it.

  2. Crystal says:

    I am a Canadian citizen, which means my reservation is also in Canada. I am currently enrolled in a University, but I’m wondering if I can still receive a scholarship even though I was not born here or a member of any bands down here? I could really use any help you can offer in helping find the right scholarship for me. Thank you.

  3. Annette says:

    my son is a member of a Canadian tribe… he is enrolled in a college here in Iowa, and could really use scholarship help, any ideas where to find the best help… the school that he is attending will be starting jun 3rd

  4. Brenda says:

    I have 3 kids attending college in ca. I am a registered Pomo from Willits ca. One goes to a university, another to a 15 month certificate program college and the third to an 9 month certificate program college. What scholorships would be available for them?

  5. penelope says:

    This is a great page. I would like to make a contribution to a scholarship for native women. If anyone has any information about programs that benefit women specifically, it would be great to hear from you.
