Eligibility: Meet the Residency definition of a Utah Navajo and enrollment with the Navajo Nation as a tribal member. Students can attend a university of their choice but their parents have to be a full time resident living in San Juan County, Utah. Older students with a family, must have lived in San Juan County, Utah for the past five years or have left San Juan County not more than one year ago.
Students can attend any university, college, or technical/trade school of their choosing, including on-line courses. Most of the Utah Navajo students attend universities in the states of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and Ft Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, mostly because Utah Navajo students are eligible for in-state tuition because the Navajo Nation is in these states. UNTF can also fund high school students under the concurrent enrollment program, where they can continue to attend high school and some college classes at the same time.
