Financial Aid and Scholarships

Scholarship Board

In addition to the general scholarship application, TMCC offers many scholarships specific to a variety of programs. The college also periodically receives information about scholarships from outside agencies.

Listed below are the most current scholarship opportunities in both of these categories. Select a scholarship link for information about that scholarship, as well as the application and contact information.

Scholarship Name: SSA Native American Undergraduate Archaeology Scholarship
Agency: Society for American Archaeology
Description: The Native American Scholarships Fund is an endowment established to foster a sense of shared purpose and positive interaction between archaeologists and Native Americans. Scholarships are open to all Native peoples from anywhere in the Americas, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Indigenous Pacific Islanders. Since 1998, the SAA has used the endowment income to award the annual Arthur C. Parker Scholarship in support of archaeological training for Native Americans who are students or employees of tribal, Alaska Native, or Native Hawaiian cultural preservation programs. National Science Foundation (NSF) Scholarships for Archaeological Training for Native Americans and Native Hawaiians are also awarded through the Native American Scholarships Committee. In 2009, the SAA added two new awards in support of undergraduate and graduate archaeology education.
Qualifications: You do not need to be formally accepted into the program or university at the time of application. However, scholarships will not be paid until the SAA is satisfied that the awardee has been formally accepted into a program or university. Normally, the SAA will arrange to pay tuition and other costs directly to the institution; the balance of the award will be sent to the awardee as a stipend. For the student scholarships, you must be enrolled in a regionally accredited university in the United States, or if outside the United States, a university with equivalent accreditation. Applicants are critically evaluated to understand their interest in archaeology and their proposed program, their previous accomplishments and the contributions the applicant hopes to make to the discipline’s future. Scoring is based on the completeness of the application, the coherence and clarity of the personal statement, a reasonable and justified budget, and compelling letters of recommendation about the applicant’s past successes and future potential. An individual may only be the recipient of one scholarship in each category: (1) the Native American Undergraduate Archaeology Scholarship, (2) the Native American Graduate Archaeology Scholarship, and (3) the Arthur C. Parker Scholarship/NSF Scholarships for Archaeological Training.
