Deadline for applications is Jan. 31
TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — The Cherokee Nation Foundation is accepting scholarship applications for the 2018-19 academic year. The deadline to apply is Jan. 31, 2018.
CNF recently created multiple new opportunities through the successful completion of its “Leave a Legacy” endowment campaign, which created more than $200,000 in new scholarships for Cherokee students.
All applications are evaluated based on academic performance as well as community and cultural involvement.
The foundation offers three differently funded scholarships: private, tribal and institutionally based. There are currently two institutions with Cherokee endowments, the University of Tulsa and Oklahoma State University.
Once students create an online profile, they have instant access to a one-stop shop for all CNF scholarships. The system also provides students with notifications about upcoming scholarship opportunities and deadlines.
