“A person's wealth is measured by what they give away.”
- Lummi Tribal Proverb

The gift of education is the gift of opportunity. With your generous support, the American Indian College Fund provides funding for:

  • scholarships for American Indian College students,
  • fellowships for tribal college faculty and staff,
  • culturally appropriate early childhood education development at tribal colleges,
  • leadership development programs,
  • science projects, laboratories, and experiments; and
  • capital funding for tribal college campuses.


There are a number of ways you can help Native college students through the American Indian College Fund:

  • Make a donation.
    Your donations fund scholarships for American Indian students. Go to How to Donate for more information.
  • Honor someone with a memorial/tribute donation.
    Recognize a loved one through a gift to the American Indian College Fund in their name. Your donation is acknowledged by a letter sent to the person of your choice. Please visit How to Donate for more information.
  • Attend an event.
    Each year, we host Special Events to raise funds for student scholarships. Visit our calendar on the homepage for the latest information.

From the staff and students at the nation's tribal colleges,
please accept our sincere thanks for your support.


Every dollar makes a difference to our students.

In 2011-12, the Fund distributed $5,641 million in scholarships and program support, which directly translated into scholarships for more than 4,218 American Indian students.

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