Are you an enrolled Oregon tribal member going to college and need money for college for the 2022‐23 academic year? Apply today for the Oregon Tribal Student Grant! This new grant program is expected to pay for most or all public college‐related expenses—including tuition, housing, books, and other costs not covered by other grants—for eligible Oregon tribal students. It can be applied toward undergraduate or graduate study at Oregon public colleges and universities as well as eligible private non‐profit institutions, where award amounts can go up to the public institution maximum level, in the upcoming 2022‐23 school year. See eligible Oregon college or universities here. After all federal and state grants and scholarships have been applied, the Oregon Tribal Student Grant can be used toward your remaining cost of attendance.
To be eligible for the program students must be an enrolled member of one of the nine federally recognized tribes in Oregon:
- Burns Paiute Tribe
- Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians
- Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde
- Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians
- Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation
- Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs
- Coquille Indian Tribe
- Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians
- Klamath Tribes
Students must also be enrolled or accepted for enrollment at an Oregon college or university and a valid FAFSA or ORSAA for the 2022‐23 academic year. Additional eligibility information can be found on the Oregon Tribal Student Grant website.
The priority deadline for students enrolling in the Fall 2022 term is August 1st, 2022 at 5 pm. To meet this deadline students must have a valid 2022‐23 FAFSA or ORSAA and submit an application. Additional application windows may open later for other academic terms if funding allows.
