Nez Perce Higher Education Scholarship Program

The purpose of the Nez Perce Tribal Higher Education Scholarship Program is to  encourage and financially assist Nez Perce tribal members to seek higher education through  available tribal funds. An overall goal is to expand educational opportunities as a  means for individual tribal members to reach cultural, economic, and social prosperity  and to contribute to protecting and advancing the sovereignty and way of life of the Nez Perce people. Assistance will be awarded on the basis of tribal enrollment,  initiative, scholastic rating, and the availability of funds.
