Student Support Program Helps Students Cover Living Expenses for Academic Success

Date: November 06, 2023

The journey toward academic success can be expensive and stressful. The newly- launched Chickasaw Nation Student Support Program offers funding to help cover costs of living for Chickasaw citizens pursuing their education in college or career technology programs. Students can use this general financial assistance to help overcome financial stressors that may affect their grades and education, including housing, utilities, transportation, living expenses and tutoring services each semester. 
Eligible Chickasaw citizens include those enrolled at two- or four-year online, private, state or nationally accredited universities, colleges, career technology centers, trade schools or other licensing or certification training facilities.  

Funding may be awarded once each fall and spring semester. To apply for financial assistance, a variety of documents may be requested such as proof of enrollment, transcripts, income verification or non-income statement, housing verification, utility bills or other applicable forms. 

The application deadline for the fall semester is Jan. 1. Apply now at
