College & Career Services

Overview



College & Career Services (CCS) offers financial aid assistance to enrolled members of the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe attending College / University in the United States. In addition to the Tribe’s funding, the Service provides guidance with applying to college, FAFSA, HESC (TAP), and other scholarships.

The TLAP Scholarship funds students pursuing their undergraduate degree (associates or bachelor’s degree) or graduate degree (masters or doctorate).
