Longhouse Scholarships

The Peninsula College Longhouse Scholarship was established in 2012 to reflect the College’s commitment to further grow and nurture the mission of the Longhouse, and to support the academic success of tribal students.

Each year, the Peninsula College Longhouse Scholarship (a one-year scholarship for tuition and fees) is awarded to one member of each of the local tribes. Students should contact the appropriate Longhouse Scholarship Tribal Contact listed below to request an application and for information on criteria, deadlines, and the selection process.
