Applicants must have a household income below 80 percent of the national median income and live in Robeson, Hoke, Scotland or Cumberland counties. Enrolled applicants must be full-time students pursuing a degree and have a 3.0 GPA and upon acceptance maintain a 2.5 GPA or higher. Graduate students are also eligible. Recipients must commit to 20 hours of community service per semester for tribal activities.

Applications will be available starting December 14.
