The American Indian College Fund is educating the mind and spirit of Native American communities by providing Native student scholarships and programmatic support for the nation's 34 accredited tribal colleges and universities, which are located on or near Indian reservations to provide access to an affordable, quality higher education while preserving Native cultures and languages.

The American Indian College Fund, established in 1989, is the nation's largest and highest-rated American Indian scholarship organization. Your support helps us to provide:

  • scholarships and other financial support to help American Indian students get to school and succeed while they are there;

 

Every dollar makes a difference to our students.

In 2012-13, the Fund distributed $5,374,942 in scholarships and program support, which directly translated into 6,158 scholarships for American Indian students, of which 1,549 students were first-generation college students.

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic success, financial need, community involvement, and commitment to their tribal communities.
