Scholarship Nomination



A nomination will only be considered complete once all of the above requirements are met and all documents are received. Once all nominations are received, a Selection Committee of the MIEA Board of Directors will select the Scholarship Recipients. Nominators will be notified by e-mail if their recipient was selected, and all winners will be announced at the annual conference. There will be no exceptions in this process and selections approved by the Board of Directors will be final.

Each year, the Minnesota Indian Education Association presents awards to deserving individuals who are working hard and doing great things in Indian Country. Award winners will be judged based on the following characteristics. Nominators should be sure to address each of these in their statements:

  • Other achievements, awards, and recognition
  • Grades (students only)
  • Role in the Indian Education community
  • Extent to which American Indian culture is reflected in their life/work style
  • Role model/leadership
