Scholarships

TCU鈥檚 diverse funding opportunities celebrate Native American and Indigenous students鈥 heritage and support success.

Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women鈥檚 Scholarship

Indigenous women experience a disproportionate degree of violence and disappearance in North America. In 2017, the U.S. Senate 鈥 the birthday of Hanna Harris, a member of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe who had been raped and murdered 鈥 as a National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Native Women and Girls (MMIWG). In 2021, President Joe Biden issued the first  designating May 5 as Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons Awareness Day.

Seeking to honor and raise awareness around MMIW, TCU created the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women鈥檚 Scholarship in 2019. Undergraduates interested in illuminating and seeking solutions to this crisis may apply for TCU鈥檚 MMIW Scholarship.

We share Hanna Harris鈥 name to educate about the MMIW crisis, but do so with utmost respect, acknowledging that many tribes refrain from speaking names of relatives who have journeyed on.

Four Directions Scholars Program

Beginning in the 2024-25 academic year, TCU will award a four-year scholarship annually to two first-year undergraduate citizens of a federally recognized tribe (pending recipients鈥 meeting the university鈥檚 eligibility requirements for receiving financial aid). The scholarship covers the basic annual cost of attending the university, including an award for full tuition and an allowance for an on-campus room, meal plan and books.
