25 U.S. Code § 1806 - Eligibility studies
The Secretary is authorized to enter into an agreement with the Secretary of Education to assist the Bureau of Indian Affairs in developing plans, procedures, and criteria for conducting the eligibility studies required by this section. Such agreement shall provide for continuing technical assistance in the conduct of such studies.
The Secretary, within thirty days after a request by any Indian tribe, shall initiate a  eligibility study to determine whether there is justification to encourage and maintain a tribally controlled college or university, and, upon a positive determination, shall aid in the preparation of grant applications and related budgets which will insure successful operation of such an institution. Such a positive determination shall be effective for the fiscal year succeeding the fiscal year in which such determination is made.
 So in original. Probably should be “an”.
1998—Subsec. (b). Pub. L. 105–244 substituted “college or university” for “community college”.
1983—Subsec. (a). Pub. L. 98–192, § 6(a)(2), (3), substituted “eligibility” for “feasibility” and “Secretary of Education” for “Assistant Secretary of Education of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare”.
Subsec. (b). Pub. L. 98–192, § 6(a)(2), (4), inserted provision that such positive determination be effective for fiscal year succeeding fiscal year in which such determination is made, and substituted “eligibility” for “feasibility”.
Subsec. (c)(2). Pub. L. 98–192, §§ 4(b)(1), 6(a)(5), substituted “5 per centum” for “10 per centum” and made a technical amendment to reference to section 1807 of this title to reflect renumbering of that section.
