students of Native American descent are eligible to participate whose tribe is
recognized by the federal government. Eligibility does not consider
income level. Procedures for enrolling your school-age child as a
recipient of the program begin with the completion of a Title VI Student

requirement is: any student who can

must be used to supplement the education of the Native American students.
