Tribal Nation Building Leadership Scholarship

Deadline Extended to April 15

We understand that many schools and Tribal governments are closed at this time due to COVID-19, therefore getting transcripts and letters of recommendation may be difficult. If they cannot be attained at present, they can be sent in at a later date. All materials will be required to be on file before any scholarship monies are disbursed.

Scholarship Description:

The Tribal Nation Building Leadership (TNBL) Scholarship stemmed from a partnership between WSU’s Center for Native American Research and Collaboration and the chancellors of the Vancouver, Tri-Cities, and Everett campuses to support American Indian and Alaska Native students participating in WSU’s TNBL Program. The TNBL Program teaches and mentors students in a cohort-based model to develop leadership skills and knowledge grounded on cultural principles, practices, and values. The TNBL Scholarship is for new incoming freshmen students and transfer students. See TNBL Program for more information. Awards are renewable if criteria are met.

  • Applicants must have a minimum high school or college GPA of 3.0.
  • Applicants must plan to enroll at the Pullman, Vancouver, Tri-Cities, or Everett campuses.
  • Applicants must enroll in TNBL virtual course during the first semester and ongoing TNBL credits based on an advising plan. *Note. The TNBL coordinator will help students develop an advising plan that satisfies TNBL requirements while also meeting academic and campus requirements.
