Chief Standing Bear’s contributions towards Civil Rights have left a lasting
impression on Nebraskans and have had an impact on all Americans as well.
In Commemoration of his efforts, the Chief Standing Bear Scholarship
Committee is offering two $2,500 scholarships to American Indian students who are
enrolled in a tribe and who will be attending a higher-education institution (e.g. fouryear
college/university, community college, tribal college, technical school, etc.) in the
upcoming fall term.
The scholarship will be distributed directly to the student in two equal payments
of $1,250 (August and January). The August payment will be provided upon receipt of
enrollment in the higher-education institution. The January payment will be provided
upon receipt of the student’s first semester grades and registration of classes for the next
semester/quarter. Grade Point Average must be above a 2.5 during the first semester.
