Both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply.  Among the factors considered in the review of applicants are histories of involvement with, and interest in, the Native-American community; a strong academic record; and demonstrated financial need.  The application deadline is February 1, 2013.  For more information and an application form for the Ida V.
