Each tribe has their own requirements for the amount of blood that will be accepted as a member of the tribe. Some require a percentage such as 25% while others need the individual to only be descended from a Native American. This is used for enrollment in the tribe and may or may not disqualify an individual from receiving the scholarship. This will not mean a CIB is not attainable for the individual from the Bureau of Indian Affairs whom issued the CIB. The American Indian College Fund supplies many resources to individuals of Native American descent in finding scholarships including applications, different programs for tribal colleges and mainstream colleges, as well as resources for instructors and counselors in helping students obtain these scholarships.

Resources for Registering for Scholarships

There are 561 recognized tribes in the United States; that is tribes recognized by the US government. It should be noted that the Federal Government is not the only source of scholarships and money for Native American college students; many state governments have programs set up for those students living in their state. In addition there are federally funded tribal schools that have a wealth of resources available to the Native American students that attend their educational institutions. Particular organizations, like the American Indian Science and Engineering Society provides private donations in the form of scholarships and funds to those Native American students seeking a career in science and engineering.
