INFORMATION IS DIRECTLY FROM THE GOVERNOR’S OFFICE OF INDIAN AFFAIRS – SCHOLARSHIP:
With assistance from the Louisiana Indian Educational Association, the Office of Indian Affairs annually provides awards to Native American students from Louisiana tribes to attend a college or higher education institution of their choice. The awards are funded through proceeds received from the renewal and sale of special prestige license plates for motor vehicles representing Native American culture in accordance with RS 47:463:78. Recipients are selected based on academic and financial need.
