NATIVE AMERICAN SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS
Please note that eligibility for many of these scholarships is not limited exclusively to American Indians.
"If the white man wants to live in peace with the Indian, he can live in peace.....Treat
all men alike. Give them all the same law. Give them all an even chance to live and
grow. All men were made by the same Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers. The
Earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it.......Let
me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade....where
I choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to think
and talk and act for myself, and I will obey every law, or submit to the penalty."
