The American Indian College Fund's motto is educating the mind and spirit. We achieve this by providing Native students with scholarships and providing financial support for the nation's 34 accredited tribal colleges and universities, which incorporate American Indian culture and language into their curriculum to honor our students' heritage and Native identity.
Established in 1989, the American Indian College Fund is the nation's largest and highest-rated American Indian scholarship organization. Your support helps us to provide:
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.
