Cook Inlet Tribal Council offers two unique scholarship opportunities for degree-seeking individuals pursuing a college degree.
Tribal Higher Education Scholarship: For CIRI shareholders or descendants only. Students may attend part or full time to receive this scholarship.
Alyeska Match Scholarship: The Alyeska Match Scholarship is a supplementary scholarship to the CITC Tribal Higher Education Scholarship. Applicants for the CITC Scholarship who are enrolled in a qualifying program may also qualify for a “match” scholarship from the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company’s Alaska Native Program. Qualifying programs include: engineering; health safety and environment/security; construction and project management/project controls; computer science/MIS; instrumentation/process technology/Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA); and accounting/business administration/economics/finance.
Alyeska Match applicants must also meet all Tribal Higher Education Scholarship requirements in addition to maintaining a 2.5 cumulative GPA or higher. For more information, visit The CIRI Foundation’s scholarship page.
The Higher Education Scholarship Program is now being administered by The CIRI Foundation.
Scholarship deadlines are June 1 for the Fall term, and December 1 for Spring.
Scholarships are available to CIRI voting shareholders and their lineal descendants. Available to full-time and part-time students.
Paper applications will become available from The CIRI Foundation 30 days in advance of the deadline. Applications will be available in-person at TCF’s office or online at www.thecirifoundation.org.
