2018 Tewaaraton Outstanding Native American Scholarship Presented By US Lacrosse Application PART 1 - DUE APRIL 30th, 2018


The objective of the Tewaaraton Outstanding Native American Scholarship is to recognize and reward exceptional students’ academic and athletic achievement. This award is for Native American lacrosse players of Haudenosaunee heritage (i.e., Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Mohawk, Tuscarora). All awards are based on academic achievement, athletic performance and ambition. Additionally, nominees are asked to articulate what they have learned from playing the game of lacrosse that has prepared them for future success. Since one of the primary goals of the Tewaaraton Outstanding Native American Scholarship is to honor lacrosse’s Native American roots, the selection committee will weigh heavily on this aspect of the application. Students must be seniors (12th grade) enrolled in high school and be in good academic standing to be eligible for this scholarship.

The scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to one Native American female student and one Native American male student. Each scholarship is for $10,000 -- $5,000 for the first year of college and $5,000 for the second year of college. The selection committee is comprised of Tewaaraton Foundation Board members, lacrosse coaches and leaders from the Native American community. The two scholarship winners will be invited to attend the Tewaaraton Award Ceremony and accept their award as part of the celebration in Washington, D.C. on May 30 and May 31, 2018. Reasonable travel costs for each recipient and 2 members of their family are paid for by the Foundation.
