LAS VEGAS PAIUTE TRIBE
The Education Committee currently consists of 9 members of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe.
This is a volunteer committee.
The Committee meets on a monthly basis to review applications of financial aid for the members of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe and its descendants. We award financial aid based on academic merit and maintaining a minimum GPA of 2.0. The financial aid pays for the students' tuition and books. We grant awards for Trade School, Summer School, Community College, Universities, and Academic Field trips. The Committee plans events for the Las Vegas Paiute Community. Some events include educational field trips such as touring the San Diego Zoo. We also host holiday parties for the members of the Tribe and their families. The Committee also donates their time towards fundraising efforts.
The Committee meets on a monthly basis, sometimes more based on need. The public is not allowed into meetings. Members of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe are always allowed to sit in on meetings and voice opinions and concerns during open discussion.
The Las Vegas Paiute Tribe Education Program is for use by Las Vegas Paiute Tribal members, biological children and grandchildren.
