Scholarships

Donate to our Scholarship Fund

In 2023 scholarships totaling $141,450 were available to students pursuing higher education. We have seen growth with the establishment of additional scholarships and prospective students. In 2023 alone, three new scholarships were established, and 72 scholarships were awarded for the 2023-2024 academic year.

We take great pride in helping individuals achieve their dreams of higher education and adult literacy. Our recipients have taken the first step toward achieving their goals and setting good examples for younger generations.

Individual donors, organizations and the Chickasaw Nation Employee Charitable Contribution Plan have allowed us to change lives for many years. For the 2023-2024 academic year, we had 29 endowed scholarships and 33 named scholarships. Since 2004, over $1.8 million has been available to award for scholarships.

“Education opens the door to so many opportunities and careers, it is truly life changing to receive an education,” said Felicia Gilliam, Chickasaw Foundation donor.

Five-time Scholarship Recipient

"Medical school is challenging enough and having less stress about tuition and finances freed up much of my time and energy to focus on trying to learn medicine well. To be awarded a Chickasaw Foundation scholarship meant that a whole group of Chickasaws valued my educational endeavors and passion enough to support me."
