Coming soon: Marking your scholarship as “for room and board”

For fall 2024, students applying for the Tribal scholarship will be able to request that the funding be designated as “for room and board.” This is to allow students like those who attend University of California schools to access their full Tribal benefits.

Tribal scholarships no longer subject to tax

Native American students who receive scholarships from their tribe are no longer required to pay taxes on those dollars, even if students use the funds for expenses other than tuition.
