Verification Processes

All submitted applications are reviewed by a number of highly competent Native education specialists who work for Indigenous Education, Inc.

Hundreds of carefully screened and chosen applicants receive merit-based offers after this review, and they advance into FINALIST status in the first few days of May every year. In this phase, numerous things take place at once:

Finalists must accept (or reject) the offer before submitting their completed most recent transcripts and documentation of their enrolment in the subsequent term for which financing will be provided.

Depending on the specific institutional policies, this could happen very early on or very late in the process. We also like to see students’ faces, therefore a photo upload is an option.

The post-acceptance process typically remains open throughout the summer in order to accommodate this as well as to reduce stress on the Finalist. It is important to understand that during this time, scholarship offers will not be lost; and,

The staff works with tribal enrollment offices to verify citizenship, and the staff works with financial aid offices to verify university attendance and financial aid eligibility.

*In some rare instances, they need the Finalist’s assistance in reaching out to these offices, but for most, IEI tries to do the heavy lifting for Finalists.

At any point in the verification process a Finalist chooses to attend a different school or contact information changes, they can simply log in to make changes or contact our offices for assistance.

Disbursement of funds is processed on a first-completed, first-funded basis, each Friday throughout each academic term.

**Each year, a waitlist is established. Individuals on the waitlist can see this status in OASIS. Offers to individuals on the waitlist can be made at any time during the academic year; therefore, it is important that applicants keep their information updated in OASIS.
