The Genoa U.S. Indian School Foundation is offering a $1,000 scholarship.  We are pleased to provide a scholarship to a descendant of a Genoa U.S. Indian School student. Since the focus of the Genoa School was to provide an education for Native Americans, we feel a duty to try and help descendants of former students by offering a scholarship to a descendant so they might further their education.

The cover letter and application may be obtained by e-mailing the following address or by writing to the Genoa Indian School Foundation. Box 382, Genoa NE 68640. Included in this mailing is a copy of the scholarship application.  Please share this with any descendant that you feel would benefit from this scholarship. The Deadline for application is June 15th, 2017. For more information, please e-mail at nfcarls@hotmail.com (please note scholarship on e-mail subject line) or call 402-993-6055. Encourage the students to write several pages on the application.
