Cherokee Scholarship Deadline June 8th

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – The Cherokee Nation College Resource Center seasonal scholarship deadline is June 8.

The CRC offers scholarships to all students who are CN citizens.

This was the first year the CRC created a website that allows students to access scholarships by creating online profiles. In previous years, students went to the CRC and filled out paperwork, which they took to different tribal departments if necessary. Now students can go online at any time to search and apply for scholarships after filling out a general application.

Once students create the online general application and profile, they will be able to see a list of CN, Cherokee Nation Foundation and Cherokee Nation Businesses scholarships they qualify for. Scholarships on the CRC website are continuously updated and students who received scholarships will be able to accept the award online.

To create a profile, visit and then click on the ‘apply for CN scholarships’ link.

For more information, call the CRC at 918-453-5000 or 1-800-256-0671 or email
