You aren't Cherokee if you aren't an enrolled mmbeer. Write it on your application all you want, but scholarships towards college/uni tuition come from the Band themselves, not the government. An enrolled mmbeer applies to the Band, and still has to compete against others for a scholarship. It does not apply to sad little money grubbers who have never taken an interest in their heritage and only want to exploit the myth of free monies from the government. Would you apply for a scholarship meant for Black students, just because you had one black person somewhere in your lineage?
