The Siragusa Foundation of Chicago, Illinois has announced it is renewing a grant of $15,000 to the American Indian College Fund to benefit American Indian student scholarships.
The grant will support qualified American Indian students by providing financial resources to encourage them to complete a college degree. With an education, students can build a better life for themselves, their families, and make valuable contributions to their communities and nation.
Irene Phelps, president of The Siragusa Foundation, said, “The Siragusa Foundation is proud of its partnership with the American Indian College Fund, which provides meaningful and valuable financial support to students with otherwise limited means. An education has the power to exponentially transform not only an individual student, but whole families and entire communities.”
