Tribal Roles in Education


American Indians and Alaska Natives are the fastest-growing groups in the country, making our work in educating our people urgent.

With Native people enrolling in college in record numbers, tribal communities need a better-educated and more professional workforce to solve the unique and complex challenges in Indian Country while safeguarding sovereignty. Yet research shows that only 5% of American Indians can afford to go to college. To facilitate an educated Indian Country, the American Indian College Fund must provide scholarship support to Native students.

We need your help! For more information on ways to work with the American Indian College Fund, please contact Cheryl M. Ellenwood.
