Midwest SOARRING Foundation is pleased to announce our 2019 Janet Standing Bear Scholarship for all students of native ancestry or interest in Native American culture who are pursuing advanced degrees and trades in undergraduate or graduate education in any field. While tribal enrollment or native ancestry is not required, we are interested in applicants who can demonstrate their positive involvement in their community with Native American cultural activities and/or advancing Indigenous concerns.

The scholarship amount is $1,000 and will be announced at the 25th Harvest Pow Wow, Sunday, September 22, 2019. The Pow Wow takes place at the Naper Settlement, 523 Webster St., Naperville, IL. The final decision to award the scholarship is at the discretion of the Midwest SOARRING Scholarship Committee.
