Mission Statement


The Miami Nation is committed to supporting the education of Myaamia people of all ages through the funding of scholarships, student loans and continuing education programs. The Myaamia Scholarship Selection Committee is made up of three Tribal members appointed by the Business Committee and given the responsibility of awarding the following scholarships on behalf of the General Council. Scholarships are awarded by the Committee through a blind application process. All scholarship applications must be fully completed upon submission, or the application will not be considered. Note: All scholarships offered by The Miami Tribe of Oklahoma are for enrolled members/citizens of the tribe only.
