Undergraduate Scholarships, American Indian Education Foundation
How to Apply
The Undergraduate Scholarship service supports educational opportunities for American Indian and Alaska Native students by awarding more than 200 scholarships annually. We also offer a free guide to help Native Americans pursue higher education: Tools for Success — A Guide for High School Seniors, Families, Counselors and others… - http://www.nrcprograms.org/site/DocServer/Tools_For_Success.pdf?docID=901.
Applications submitted by eligible Native American students each spring are reviewed by members of the Scholarship Committee - http://www.nrcprograms.org/site/PageServer?pagename=aief_scholarshipcommittee, who award the competitive grants. Up to $2,000 per year is paid directly to each recipient’s college or university. Grantees must maintain a grade point average of at least 2.0 and submit grades to us each semester.
