Daughters of the American Revolution American Indian Scholarship

Description

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution offers the DAR American Indian Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to help Native Americans students of any age, any tribe and in any state striving to get an education at the undergraduate or graduate levels. However, undergraduate students are given preference. All awards are judged based on financial need and academic achievement. Applicants must be Native Americans (proof of American Indian blood is required by letter or proof papers) in financial need and have a grade point average of 3.25 or higher. There will be no exceptions. This is a one-time $4,000 award. Applicants must be citizens of the United States to apply for a scholarship offered by the DAR Scholarship Committee. DAR chapter sponsorship is not required, however, applicants may want to reach out to a DAR chapter in their area for help with their applications. Applicants should submit their scholarship applications for the 2021 academic year using the DAR's new on-line process. Please do not submit handwritten documents. Please do not submit personal photographs. Individuals providing letters of recommendation will be able to submit their information confidentially through the on-line application portal once applicants have set up their scholarship profile using the scholarship application submission process. Applicants should obtain and submit a copy of their school transcript. Applicants selected as scholarship recipients will be contacted to provide a sealed official transcript which will be sent to the DAR headquarters. All submitted information is either typed or computer generated.
