Watch Alberta's Story

Imagine carrying the dreams of your ancestors into every classroom, into every life experience. For one College Fund scholar, it has never been a burden. Rather, it is a privilege.

Alberta is living her ancestors’ prayers because of the financial support she received from the College Fund. Now with a degree in indigenous liberal studies, she has a deeper understanding of her own heritage and the historical context surrounding laws and policies that affect Native peoples. She’ll use this knowledge in her future legal career.

As Alberta knows well, the best way to give back is to give forward. She’s fulfilling the dreams of her ancestors, and going beyond, by furthering her education and serving her community. Won’t you join her by supporting another student today?

“We’re a proud people. We’re a strong people. But at the same time, we live in a modern world. The College Fund has a plan for increasing the number of students receiving their diplomas. Education is the best way we can live the prayers of our ancestors.”
