scholarships
 
 

Navajo Technical University currently assists in supporting five (5) prestigious scholarships that are only available to NTU undergraduates and graduates. Through many initiatives around campus, NTU has secured funding from various organizations to help offset the costs of attendance. Our goal is to increase recruitment, retention and graduation rates of our students.

Each of the programs has requested for specific eligibility requirements that support our Diné Philosophy of Education and the mission of their program.

In preparation for the application, the following information will help improve your competitive application and reduce complications with the selection process:

  1. You must have completed your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have it submitted to our NTU Financial Aid Office.
  2. Your NTU Financial Aid Application, including all required documentation, must be completed.
  3. Your NTU Skyhawk email should be active. We will not send out any decisions to personal email accounts due to privacy regulations.

Other important information:

  • All scholarships are awarded per semester and are not distributed in annual sums.
  • If your eligibility or status changes at any time, your application or award maybe voided or cancelled.
  • Not all qualified applicants will receive an award, due to limited funding.

 

Navajo Student Applicants:
The application requires you to submit your Navajo Nation Certificate of Indian Blood (CIB) and your Navajo Nation Voter Registration Verification (NNVR) because the CIB confirms your membership under the Navajo Nation and the NNVR confirms which Navajo Chapter you are from.

  • NN Voter Registration Verification can be submitted several different ways. The acceptable forms are the NNVR Card, Blue or Yellow Receipt, a letter from the chapter or a letter from NN Election Office.
    • You must be enrolled in your chapter for more than 6 months. Verification may be conducted through the Navajo Election Office and the Chapter.
    • Do not submit your County Voter Registration Card that is different from the NNVR Card.
  • Need a CIB?  The Crownpoint Enrollment Office can provide CIBs for all members, no matter where you are from. They are located by the flea market, where the old police department use to be.
  • Need a NNVR?  The Crownpoint Election Office can provide a letter that confirms which Chapter you are currently enrolled in. Again, they cover the entire Navajo Nation. They are also located by the flea market, where the old police department use to be.
