This is a list of Scholarships and other Educational/Economic Opportunities that members of the Ohlone Tribe can take advantage of.
The Scholarship List is composed of those Scholarships and Grants that are accessible to all tribes, regardless of recognition status. Those marked with a * means that it is ambiguous; there is no strict yes or no regarding recognition status as a requirement of the scholarship/grant, so anyone interested should apply anyways.
