The Yogi Crowe Memorial Scholarship has been instrumental in assisting with my financial expenses while I am in graduate school at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Each time I have applied for assistance, the board has graciously approved the support. I encourage any enrolled member of the EBCI to apply for this scholarship if they meet the requirements for funding. The requirements for receiving this scholarship are to turn in my grades from the previous funded semester, apply in time and report on how I spent the money from the last semester that I received to the Yogi Crowe Scholarship Board. The last requirement is to write a thank you letter and have it printed in the Cherokee One Feather.
I would like to thank the One Feather staff for publishing all the “thank you letters” from the Yogi Crowe Scholarship recipients. There is no charge for their service, and it is easy to submit by email especially for the out of town students. I would also like to thank EBCI Higher Education for their funding assistance and also their help when I encounter any problems with my expenses at the UT.
Lastly, I would like to thank the Yogi Crowe Memorial Board Members for their continued support and encouragement as I continue my studies to earn my graduate degree in Anthropology with a concentration in Archaeology.
