    To be eligible for a Higher Education Grant, a student must:

    - Be a member of, or at least one-quarter degree Indian blood 
    descendent of a member of an American Indian tribe which is eligible 
    for the special programs and services provided by the United States 
    through the Bureau of Indian Education because of their status as
    Indians.

    - Be accepted for admission to a nationally accredited institution
    of higher education which provides a course of study conferring the 
    Associate of Arts or Bachelor's degree.

    - Demonstrate financial need as determined by the financial aid 
    officer of the collegiate institution.

    The grant application is available from the education officer of the 
    Tribe in which you are affiliated or possess membership.  As the 
    majority of federally recognized tribes are administering the grant 
    program for their tribal members, call your tribe first.  A Tribal 
    Directory is located on the Department of the Interior's website:
    www.doi.gov/leaders 

    The burden of proof of Indian ancestry rests with the individual 
    claiming possession of Indian blood.
