Scholarship Resources for Native American Students

Native America

I'm a member of the Center for School, College, and Career Resources (CSCCR), and I specialize in finding and sharing resource to help students pay for and succeed in college. The guide I'm sharing now is dedicated to helping Native American students. In addition to a list of scholarships, it has info on retention and how to elevate these students’ sense of belonging in college, tips on securing financial aid, and a complete list of Tribal Colleges and Universities in the United States. You can read more here: Support for Native American college students

For more information on scholarships and financial aid visit the Financial aid office.

To be considered for financial aid you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). On the FAFSA, you should list the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo (UH Hilo), code number 001611, as one of the schools to receive your information. You are strongly encouraged to complete the FAFSA via the Internet . UH Hilo will receive your data electronically and will then be able to calculate your financial aid award. The priority filing date (submitted to the federal processor) is March 1st. Remember, grant funds are limited and expended quickly. File on time to ensure full consideration.
