Native Scholarship Program

SweetGrass Trading Company is a member of Ho-Chunk Trading Group. Our mission is to help provide economic opportunity for the Winnebago Tribe. But we are also dedicated to helping other Native people get a hand up to build a better future.

We are proud to offer a Native Scholarship Program for eligible Native college students who are enrolled members of Indian Tribes.

  • One $1,250 scholarship will be awarded each year to a successful applicant to help them finance their education in a 4-year college, 2-year community or technical college. As product sales grow, we anticipate that the scholarship fund will grow and offer even more opportunity to deserving Native students.
