Halito et Bonjour,
In 2009, the United Houma Nation began its scholarship fund with the goal of promoting higher education amongst tribal members. Since then, the employees of the United Houma Nation and benefactors have generously given to the Fund through payroll deductions and other means. It is because of their contributions that the United Houma Nation can provide scholarships to college-bound tribal members.
It is our hope that these scholarships will continue to be a tradition of granting scholarships annually at our awards banquet, and that our fund will grow along with our tribal members' knowledge of their chosen field, the world and their amazing potential.
If you or someone you know would like to contribute to the United Houma Nation Scholarship Fund or would like to apply for a scholarship, contact the Tribal Administrative Office by calling 985-223-3093. The application deadline is December 5, 2018. ..

With over 17,000 tribal citizens living around the world, the UHN website is a crucial tool to maintain connections with tribal citizens as well as our friends.
