      *INDIAN HEALTH SERVICE (IHS) SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM*

      /*PACKETS AVAILABLE AT THE NATIVE AMERICAN STUDENT SERVICES OFFICE

      */*EXTENDED DEADLINE DATE: Monday, April 28, 2008*

      Over the last few months, the Indian Health Service (IHS) Scholarship
      Branch has received many phone calls and inquires regarding deadlines
      for this year's scholarship application cycle for new student
      applications. This update is designed to answer many of the common
      questions and concerns that we have received from new student
      applicants, student guidance counselors, and representatives from
      colleges, universities and other affiliated organizations.

      *Important information for new applicants* (*/please read each bullet
      carefully/*):

      * IHS offers students the ability to download the majority of the
      application forms
      (http://www.scholarship.ihs.gov/sample-contracts.html). Under the
      title "Application Handbook" there are 8 documents/forms (PDF
      files) that students will need to download each one to print and
      complete.
      * The deadline for receipt of your _application package_ has been
      extended to *April 28, 2008.* Complete applications, including
      all required documentation, must be received at the IHS
      Scholarship Program office by, or when received must be postmarked
      by *April 28, 2008.* Late applications will not be accepted, nor
      will extensions be granted.
      * The award process is divided into two phases. First, IHS will
      review your application to validate that it is complete and
      accurate. Then, validated applications are placed into review for
      a scholarship award. The review process is scheduled for a
      mid-May time frame. Students who submit an application should
      contact their IHS Scholarship Program Branch to make sure their
      file is complete and all documents have been received. Students
      may not be notified by IHS if they are missing any documents.
      * There will be no penalties imposed as a result of these deadline
      extensions.
      * For a *Letter of Acceptance*, speak to a NAU Native American
      Student Services (NASS) advisor (see contact info below) for
      clarification regarding this scholarship requirement.
      * NAU students planning to apply for the IHS Scholarship are
      encouraged to set up an appointment to review all documents with
      an advisor at Native American Student Services.
