Direct Education Scholarship
The Pueblo of Laguna, through the Laguna Department of Education, supports the pursuit of higher education for its tribal members. Acceptance of scholarship funds implies a focused commitment to college studies and achieving the goal of earning a college degree.
Partners For Success awards scholarships to eligible Laguna students who are pursuing a degree on a full-time basis. The cost of a college education continues to escalate at a pace that exceeds current resources. Thus, the scholarship awards supplement federal contributions. It is unlikely the awards will be sufficient to pay the total college costs.
