Denver, Colo. - The American Indian College Fund (the Fund) received a $10,000 grant from the Agua Fund for scholarships for Ute students pursuing an education at tribal colleges and universities. The Washington D.C. foundation has been a donor since 2003.
Richard B. Williams, President and CEO of the Fund, said, “The generosity of The Agua Fund will help American Indian students achieve a higher education near their homes in an environment that celebrates their cultures while providing a quality education. Tribal colleges are located on or near reservations, allowing students who cannot otherwise afford to leave the reservation to attend college.”
