First Nations Scholarship
The First Nations Scholarship was created in 2006 for out-of-state, tribally enrolled, freshmen and transfer Native American students. This application is specifically for transfer students; the application for freshmen is separate and has an earlier deadline. The intent of this scholarship, together with the White Antelope Memorial Scholarship, is to promote, encourage and support academic success and to cultivate a thriving Native American community on the University of Colorado Boulder campus. This is accomplished by coming together for activities, events and by interacting with the Native American community. These activities/events will be at the heart of building the community, so it is imperative that you make the commitment to participate if selected for the scholarship.
Eligible students must submit proof of tribal affiliation at the time of application. Awards are based on quality of application including academic qualifications and demonstrated interest in being a positive, supportive and contributing member of the Native American community on campus; geographic diversity; and preference is given to applicants who demonstrate a minimum of 1/16th or more blood quantum (this is usually listed on the tribal affiliation documentation).
