Question by Erica T: Where can I get grants or scholorships for a native american single mother returning to college?
I’ve got two little boys, and a GED, I’ve gotten really good grade in college before, but I’ve got a lot of withdrawels and incompletes due to transportation problems, sickness, and pregnancy. So my GPA isn’t the greatest. I have no idea where to look because I paid for school myself before, but now as a single mother of two, it’s no longer an option. I need help, I miss school and want a better life for my children.

If you are enrolled in a tribe you should first approach your tribe of enrollment as they may have funds available to you. Give a copy of your tribal enrollment documentation to the school you are planning on attending. Tribal enrollment is the key to accessing scholarships and grants reserved for American Indian students. Good luck and congratulations on your decision to continue your education.
