Education

The mission of the Tribal Education Department is to cooperatively provide assistance and support to Menominee and community residents who are in need of preparation to advance in the work force or to pursue higher educational opportunities.

The Tribal Education Department administers 3 programs:

1. Adult Vocational Training Program (AVT): Designed for students planning to obtain a diploma or certificate (1-year program), or an Associate of Arts degree (2-year program) at a vocational/technical college.

2. Higher Education (HE): Designed for college-bound students planning to obtain a bachelor's degree.

3. Adult Education (AE): Designed for job-related activities such as seminars, workshops and academic courses.

Note: The Menominee Tribal Legislature adopted the following policy on September 6, 2012: “The Tribal Education Department will not fund for-profit schools (examples: University of Phoenix, ITT, Rasmussen College, Globe University) because of the high loan debt students incur and non-transferrable credits.”

Note: Located at the College of Menominee Nation inside the Culture Building.





Higher Education (HE)
a. The maximum tribal grant for HE is $2,200 per academic year for a full-time student (12 credits or more each semester; $1,100/semester). Grants for students who are less than full-time will be pro-rated according to the number of credits they are carrying. Part-time students must be carrying a minimum of 6 credits in order to be eligible for the tribal grant.

b. The maximum funding available to bachelor degree seeking students is $13,000 total of combined part-time/full-time.


Adult Vocational Training (AVT)
a. The maximum tribal grant for AVT is $2,200 per academic year for a full-time student (12 credits or more each semester; $1,100/semester). Grants for students who are less than full-time will be pro-rated according to the number of credits they are carrying.

b. The maximum training period for full-time AVT students is 24 months. Nurse’s training for full-time students is allowed 36 months.

c. Students are only eligible for funding to complete one (1) AA degree within the maximum time allowed for funding.
