PEORIA TRIBAL EDUCATION PROGRAM
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 five-member Education Committee.
- 31 new, 81 renewals, 12 part-time, 9 graduate program, and 1 part-time graduate program students received the Fall 2017 scholarship.
- 6 new, 99 renewal, 7 part-time, and 9 part-time graduate program students received the Spring 2018 scholarship.
Students often send thank you cards, letters and e-mails thanking the tribe for the help and how much they appreciate it.
The Business Committee made a decision at their October 3, 2017 meeting, to add an additional member, Mary Davey of Stillwater, OK. The Education Committee will now consist of five members.
