Indigenous Education, Inc. (IEI) currently does not offer multiple opportunities which are searchable.
To select multiple items, hold control or command and click each one.
We understand that you may identify with or be affiliated with more than one tribe. Usually, if you are combining tribal affiliations to meet the 1/4 decent option, the tribe that supplies the verification document(s) will identify the other tribe(s) on your behalf.
Without exception, IEI does not accept copies of tribal enrollment ID cards or CDIB's directly from applicants.
Navajo Nation citizens will find the tribal affiliation in AZ as that is the state in which the federal government recognizes the head tribal offices; also, for Navajo Nation citizens who have an SSN on file with the NN Office of Tribal Enrollment, the tribe will auto verify your enrollment status.
The Cobell Scholarship, AISES, and Dream Warriors are three separate organizations and may have different qualifiers for tribal affiliation.
Cobell Scholarship Program is funded as a result of a US federal settlement; thus, we are only able to fund members of US federally-recognized tribes at this time.
AISES and Dream Warriors each have the leverage to fund descendants and other indigenous groups and should not be confused with the Cobell Scholarship Program in the awarding process.
Note that all punctuation is intentionally removed from tribal names for sorting purposes

A Vocational GPA of 2.0 or higher is considered eligible; an Undergraduate GPA of 3.25 or higher is considered competitive; and, a Graduate or Professional level GPA of 3.5 or higher is considered competitive.

*What is the difference between the A.S., A.A., A.A.S., and A.A.B. degrees?*
Associate of Science (A.S.) and Associate of Arts (A.A.) degrees are designed to prepare a student for transfer to a 4-year institution to pursue their bachelor's degree. Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) and Associate of Applied Business (A.A.B.) degrees are "career" programs which prepare students for employment. A.A.S. and A.A.B. graduates sometimes pursue a bachelor's degree but should work with their academic advisor to prepare for that transfer.

*Please Note: If pursuing an A.A. or A.S. or preparing to earn a B.A. you may or may not be eligible for the Vocational Scholarship depending on how the school designates a Vocational Degree.* Vocational Finalists degrees will be verified by your school.
If you have previously been funded by IEI and have since changed your major area of study, please update your major at this time.
