ECU Nursing and Education scholarship applications now open through Chickasaw Nation

Date: June 26, 2024

In partnership with East Central University, the Chickasaw Nation is offering financial assistance to Chickasaw students in the ECU education or nursing programs. Through the Abeka Apisachi Nursing Scholarship and Holisso Pisachi Education Scholarship, students will receive the full cost of tuition and fees, as well as on-campus housing and residential support.

Selected students will work part time with the Chickasaw Nation in the education or nursing field, earning valuable experience and making connections. Additionally, students will be expected to maintain bronze-level participation in the Chickasaw Nation Recruitment and Retention Program on ECU’s campus.

To be eligible, Chickasaw students must be ECU education majors or be accepted into ECU’s nursing program before applying.

A limited number of scholarships are available. The application deadline for fall 2024 scholarships is July 31. For more information or to apply, visit or call (580) 421-7711.
