Native Pathways to College

Three hundred American Indian high school students receive assistance with preparing for college with the American Indian College Fund through its Native Pathways to College Bridge Program.

The College Fund awarded four tribal college and university grantees $50,000 in the spring of 2017 for two consecutive years to implement a year-round program. The program aims to increase the college readiness and college-going environments for American Indian and Alaska Native high school sophomores, juniors and seniors preparing for college.

Participants will improve reading comprehension, research and essay-writing, understanding of math and science concepts, knowledge of college admissions processes, and awareness of the first-year college experience.
