Chief Standing Bear Scholarship

Chief Standing Bear’s contributions towards Civil Rights have left a lasting impression on Nebraskans and have had an impact on all Americans as well.

In Commemoration of his efforts, the Chief Standing Bear Scholarship Committee is offering two $2,500 scholarships to American Indian students who are enrolled in a tribe and who will be attending a higher-education institution (e.g. four-year college/university, community college, tribal college, technical school, etc.) in the upcoming fall term.

The scholarship will be distributed directly to the student in two equal payments of $1,250 (August and January). The August payment will be provided upon receipt of enrollment in the higher-education institution. The January payment will be provided upon receipt of the student’s first semester grades and registration of classes for the next semester/quarter. Grade Point Average must be above a 2.5 during the first semester.
