American Indian Education Fund Undergraduate Scholarships

The American Indian Education Fund was established to support educational opportunities for American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian students. Our vision is strong, self-sufficient American Indian communities. 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.

Applications submitted by eligible Native American students each spring are reviewed by members of the Scholarship Committee, 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.

  2. Provide documentation of tribal enrollment for yourself or a parent.
  3. Provide transcripts with ACT and GPA scores.
  4. Enroll in an accredited technical school, college, or university as a full-time undergraduate.
  5. All undergraduate students who meet the above criteria are encouraged to apply for an American Indian Undergraduate Scholarship.

Awarded Native American students will be notified by July 1 if they have been selected to receive an undergraduate scholarship. Due to administrative costs we do not notify non-awarded students.
