The RST Education Department offers higher education program services to all tribal members.  Enrolled tribal citizens are eligible to apply for the Higher Education Scholarship for undergraduate level studies to obtain a four year accredited college or university.  


We also provide assistance for ACT fees, application fees, housing fees, book fees and other fees related to higher education.  Our Higher Education Coordinator is available for career guidance and assistance for all tribal citizens requesting information related to higher education. For additional information call our Higher Education office to visit or set up an appointment.
