PEORIA TRIBAL EDUCATION PROGRAM

CRITERIA

The Peoria Tribal Education Program gives tribal members financial assistance in meeting their higher education goals.  Eligibility requirements include a 2.5 GPA, full-time or part-time enrollment in an accredited college or vocational training institution, and enrollment in the Peoria Tribe.  There are no financial guidelines and the scholarship is paid directly to the student as long as all criteria are met. Applications may be obtained from the Peoria Tribal Office or our web page, www.peoriatribe.com.

Applications are accepted until July 31 for the Fall term and until January 7 for the Spring term.  Evaluation of applications and final decisions regarding eligibility are made by the three-member Education Committee.
