Scholarships

There are thousands of scholarships available to college bound students. Below are resources for our Native American Students

Special thank you to Rosie Dayzie for compiling this booklet. 

 This is a contribution, to provide scholarship information for Native students, to encourage and promote postsecondary education for Native students, to promote networking opportunities for Native Americans, and to raise awareness and appreciation for the contributions made by Native Americans to our society. I share this resource with the hope that you would also seek compassion about young people who need guidance and support toward finding the quality of life.

 JLVCollegeCounseling.com is a free resource for prospective and current college students, as well as their parents and guardians. They believe that college admissions and financial aid information should be available to all students and families, no matter their financial circumstances. Therefore, everything available at JLVCollegeCounseling.com is free and no family will be charged for any information or advice they receive from the site . (updated monthly)
