Education

Cherokee Nation’s commitment to education is unmatched. In the past 12 years, every eligible student who applied for a scholarship was awarded one. And since 2002, Cherokee Nation’s investment in public schools from the sale of car tags exceeded $76 million. More Cherokees are going to college than ever before and we believe that every Cherokee citizen should have the opportunity to live up to their God-given potential.
