These awards are limited to 2013 Oregon American Indian high school seniors who will be attending a post-secondary institution. The purpose of these $100 awards is to encourage American Indian students to continue their education beyond high school and to help defray some of the numerous expenses involved in attending a higher education institution. It is not intended to serve as a scholarship; therefore it would not be included as “other sources of income” on a financial aid application.
Students must complete this application and provide all necessary information requested to become eligible for award consideration. Recipients will not receive the monetary award until they provide OIEA with verification of enrollment at a post-secondary institution.
Applications must be received by 5pm, Friday, April 12, 2013. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
