All requested materials will need to be submitted by the application deadline to be considered.
Each applicant must be an enrolled member of the Northern Arapaho Tribe and be seeking an undergraduate or graduate degree. Previous recipients are required to reapply for continued support.
Applicants are asked to describe their involvement in Native American activities and to explain how they plan to use their education to benefit the Northern Arapaho people.
Scholarships will be awarded based on scholastic ability, potential and achievement; involvement in school, community and tribal activities; potential to contribute to the Northern Arapaho people upon graduation; and financial circumstances.
Scholarship awards may cover the cost of attendance, including tuition and fees, room and board, and books, less any other financial aid, grants, gift aid or scholarships that are received by the applicant/recipient.
Applicants are expected to have been admitted to UW and to apply for federal financial aid by submitting a 2021-22 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.studentaid.gov/.
Students can complete a FAFSA form now for the next school year.
