Native American Scholarship Department
Since 1934 IOKDS had a concern about Native Americans’ living conditions, treaty rights, and post-secondary education. After World War II, IOKDS began lending a hand for education to Native American youth. Today IOKDS awards $1000 college tuition scholarships for study in the recipient’s field of choice.
