Career Training Scholarship Program

The Osage Nation Education Department (ONED) realizes that not all skills are obtained through formal post-secondary education. For this reason, the Osage Nation Career Training Scholarship (ONCTS) is provided to Osage students enrolled in a program awarding a certification or licensure at a state or nationally accredited or licensed training facility.

Must be an enrolled member of the Osage Nation pursuing a certification or licensure from a state or nationally accredited or licensed training facility to be eligible to apply for funding. The Career Training Scholarship will apply to tuition, fees, school supplies, room and board, and transportation at an accredited institution. Scholarship amounts are dependent on annual appropriations and may vary from year to year. Students are encouraged to apply for other grants and scholarships available to them to ensure they have all funds necessary to successfully complete their chosen program.
