Native American Scholarship Database
Native American Scholarship Database
for high school students entering college in 2016-17
Created by Tami Johnson – Licensed School Counselor  2005/updated annually
These scholarships are available specifically for Native American high school students. Students should be encouraged to
apply to ALL other sources of financial aid for which they are eligible.
Helping students with Tribal Enrollment Questions
Students may need help understanding tribal enrollment procedures or may need to determine if their tribe is federally
recognized for scholarship purposes. Here are some links of tribal lists and tribal numbers. Students can call to ask about
tribal enrollment process or eligibility; they must know the name and date of birth of the parent or grandparent they believe is
enrolled in the tribe. The enrollment process and timeline varies by tribe.
List of Federally Recognized Tribes and Phone list: http://www.ncai.org/tribal-directory
List of State Recognized Tribes: http://500nations.com/tribes/Tribes_States.asp
Common Documentation needed
CDIB: Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood (a.k.a. CIB, enrollment letter, letter of descent) is a document from the tribe
showing the fraction of tribal blood for that member or descendant.
Proof of Tribal Enrollment: Letter (not enrollment card) from the tribe with the tribal enrollment number on it. The letter
may also include the degree of blood.
