Educational Assistance Program

Cherokee Nation officials plan to infuse $40 million worth of federal funding into education to help students “stay on track” during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has hit students and schools hard in lots of ways,” Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. said. “The very nature of education, how it’s safety delivered in the midst of the biggest public health crisis in generations, has changed dramatically. Distance learning has taken on an even greater importance. Technology is also needed to keep students and teachers safe as the virus continues to spread in our communities.”

Because of the pandemic, students at CN schools and across the state spent the final months of their 2019-20 school year distance learning. Under the Respond, Recover and Rebuild Education Initiative, Cherokee students age 5-18, “regardless of income and regardless of where they live,” Hoskin said, will be offered a $400 education technology stipend.
