There are many scholarships for Native American students and all it would take for someone to access them is to go on a computer at a library or if a friend or relative has a computer. Some of them are offered from your enrolled tribe and it is a big plus to be an enrolled member. Students can also, ask for help from school advisors or counselors. Getting an education is the only way to get out of the situations people are in. You can also, get scholarships from the things you like such as Coca-cola Bottling Companies or Pepsi, many big corporations will help people who are trying to fund their educations. Don't be afraid to ask for help. There is no shame in that because college fees are so high and they seem to be going higher. I know because I have helped my own children find scholarships and funding for college. One got a full-ride through his football and athletic abilities. One just graduated from an engineering five year program and he was able to obtain a scholarship through AISES because his grades were so good. Everyone needs a leg-up when it comes to a college education and there are people out-there who will give you a chance, you just have to do a little searching. Don't wait til you graduate from high school start now and google what you want to know. It's up to the individual and what degree he wants to get. Go for it!
