Application requirements for the Montana American Indian Tuition Waiver are:

  • Application form
  • Proof of ancestry/membership and residency
Additional Information: All applicants must demonstrate financial need. "Financial need" is defined as having at least one dollar of remaining need after subtracting Expected Family Contribution, all Title IV grant aid and institutional aid from the cost of attendance. The financial aid office at each campus is the official department that authorizes financial assistance, including tuition waivers and scholarships, to any student. To be certain of an award of waiver, students must be notified by the financial aid office. Waivers awarded under this policy cannot be applied to self-supporting courses. Some online courses and most continuing education courses are self-supporting. Students must pay the full tuition and fees for any self-supporting courses. This waiver may not be used with other state tuition waivers.

Award Amount: The award waives tuition for eligible students at participating institutions. The award does not waive mandatory or class fees; such fees and all others are the responsibility of the student. Students may continue to receive the waivers from year to year if they make reasonable academic progress as determined by their institution.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $3,846.
