Cherokee Nation Higher Education Scholarships


The Higher Education Program was contracted from the Bureau of Indian Affairs in 1983, with the first awards made to students attending college in the 1983 summer session. In 1990, the Cherokee Nation negotiated a Self-Governance Compact with the U.S. Government that established a direct relationship between the Cherokee Nation and the U.S. Congress. The compact authorized a direct block grant to the tribe to be allocated among various tribal programs and services, including higher education, in accordance with tribal priorities.
