Due to increasing requests for scholarship funds, we have prepared a set of
guidelines both to inform prospective applicants of their eligibility and
responsibility and to provide contributors to the scholarship fund with assurance that their donations are used properly to assist qualified Indian students. The guidelines are as follows:
Students must be an enrolled member of a Southern California Indian
reservation and must furnish proof of at least one-quarter Indian ancestry.
Students must provide verification of acceptance/enrollment at any
accredited institute of higher learning.

tuition or other supplies directly related to the course of study of the
All scholarship funds which are granted are sent directly to the Financial Aid
office where the recipient is enrolled. The student then draws the money as
necessary from the Financial Aid office.
The Malki Museum Scholarship Fund has helped many Southern California
Indian students complete their college educations. Previous recipients have
gone on into many occupations and professional careers. They include
attorneys, doctors, social workers, teachers, nurses and others. The Scholarship
Fund depends entirely on donations from interested and concerned persons, and as always is in need of support to meet the anticipated demand for financial assistance when classes begin each year.
