About the Scholarship
This scholarship program is recognized and is sponsored by the Sault Tribe to those individuals who have contributed to the Sault Ste.

Grants are based on unmet financial need as determined by the individual college in which the student is enrolled, hence an applicant must demonstrate the financial position of their family to get assisted with respect to the grant amount.
