American Indian Education Fund (AIEF) Scholarships
The mission of AIEF’s scholarship service is to give more American Indians and Alaskan Natives the resources and encouragement they need to learn and succeed. By harnessing the power of knowledge, these future leaders can bring about positive changes in their own lives and in their communities. The AIEF program is one of the United States’ largest grantors of scholarships to Native Americans, providing nearly $450,000 to about 225 students each year. Of these, nearly half are the first in their family to attend college. In addition, AIEF mentors and supports scholarship recipients throughout the year, which makes a dramatic difference in their success rates.
