Tináa Scholarship Program Change
The Goldbelt Tináa Distributions Trust trustees, comprised of the Goldbelt Board of Directors, voted to build the trust with robust scholarship offerings by incorporating previously established scholarships and launching a new scholarship under one administration. The four scholarships include the following:
- Higher Education Scholarship
- Youth Extracurricular Scholarship (YES)
- Non-Degree Enrichment Scholarship
- *New* Level-Up Vocational Scholarship
The scholarship offerings will now require that all recipients be Goldbelt shareholders with voting stock. Descendant applicants must have officially received Goldbelt shares to qualify for scholarships. Goldbelt will administer the scholarships through the Tináa Distributions Trust, which requires beneficiaries to have voting stock, prompting the eligibility change.
All scholarships will be accessible through a single online application, which will be available starting Monday, March 13, 2023.

The eligibility requirement will affect all applicants moving forward, including the summer 2023 semester and the 2023-2024 academic year. Please forward or share this information with any students or families whom the scholarship eligibility change may impact.
Descendants of Goldbelt shareholders will need to be gifted shares to qualify for scholarship benefits. The eligibility requirement will not impact award recipients who are already Goldbelt shareholders.
As of Monday, March 6, the Goldbelt Heritage Foundation no longer administers the scholarship program.
