Welcome to Chickasaw Foundation

The Chickasaw Foundation offers a variety of scholarships. Each year our application is offered in early spring and lists available scholarships along with their criteria and amount. Scholarship funding begins with each fall semester and is dependent upon the availability of funding. Scholarship awards shall be made payable directly to the students' designated college or university.

Requirements and amounts for each funding source may change during the course of a school year.

All scholarship applications must be delivered or postmarked by the stated deadline date to be considered for funding.

The Chickasaw Foundation provides educational assistance for students who demonstrate excellence in academics, community service, dedication to Native America and a commitment to learning.  Applicants will be notified by mid-July if they are selected to receive the scholarship.
