Thank you for visiting the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe’s Consolidated Higher Education Website.

We have updated our Higher Education site to best meet the need of those who are looking for tribal assistance for school. What have we done? We have recently made available all of our CHE Scholarship applications. You should be able to fill out the application online.


If you fill out the form online, remember to download your application and sign and date it before mailing it to us. Do not email it to us because it will be considered incomplete without your signature.

The applications have all the forms you need to complete or have the institution you are attending to complete. Those forms include:

a). Education Application Form.

b). Financial Aid Form (Out-of-state form and in-state form). The in-state form is for those students who are attending college in the State of Nevada. This form is recognizable by the heading. It will have the acronyms of University of Nevada Reno (UNR), Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC), Western Nevada College (WNC) and Great Basin College (GBC).

The other financial aid form (SAR) is the standard form utilized by most colleges and institutions in the country. These forms are completed by you and your Financial Aid Officer and sent back to the PLPT, CHE Office.

c). Student Contract Form. This form needs to be filled out and signed before sending them back to us.

DEADLINE DATE: November 30, 2016 ~ 4:30 p.m.
