The primary mission of the Pleasant Point Passamaquoddy Tribal Education Program is to assist eligible tribal members with financial assistance in obtaining higher education and training.  This is seen as essential to the social and economic development of the Passamaquoddy Tribe: low educational aspirations and attainment have been a major contributor to the historical problems of high unemployment, substance abuse, and low incomes among tribal members.  Assistance to individual tribal members to further education beyond the primary and secondary levels is expected to confer many different benefits upon the tribe, and the least is which is a more highly-skilled and stable labor force.

The Pleasant Point Passamaquoddy Tribal Education Program seeks to accomplish the mission through the provision of financial assistance to individual tribal members.  The intent of the Program is to bridge the gap between financial aid provided by the school or other public and private sources and the actual financial needs of  tribal members.

The BIA Scholarships Program is to be performed under contract between the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Pleasant Point Passamaquoddy Tribe.  The Passamaquoddy Tribe will administer the Scholarship Program.  The BIA Scholarship/Higher Education Program will provide financial assistance (Unmet Need) to eligible tribal members attending an accredited institution. 

The Adult Vocational Training Program is to be performed under contract between the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Pleasant Point Passamaquoddy Tribe. To provide financial assistance to eligible tribal members who seek Adult Vocational Training.
