APS Foundation Pledges $100,000 to Renew Arizona Public Service Navajo Scholars Program

The American Indian College Fund received a grant of $100,000 from the APS Foundation, the charitable giving arm of Arizona Public Service, a leading producer of electric power in the southwest. The donation will renew the Arizona Public Service Navajo Scholars Program for 2011-12, to provide scholarship support to Navajo students studying for a degree in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields (STEM) at tribal colleges including Diné College and Navajo Technical College, and mainstream colleges within the New Mexico and Arizona state university system.

How to Help

Currently only 15% of American Indians hold college degrees. But with 42% of Native Americans being 24 years old or younger, you have the opportunity to make an incredible impact for this generation and generations to come when you donate today.

Today is #GivingTuesday and every dollar you give NOW will go TWICE as far in reimagining what is possible for Native students!

Your gifts help Native students like Jerald, Samantha, Trey, and Chance become the counselors, lawyers, leaders, and justice heroes we need to fight for Native communities.
