The American Indian College Fund (the Fund) received a $30,000 grant from Johnson & Johnson to continue the Johnson & Johnson Tribal College Scholarship Program, which provides scholarships to American Indian students pursuing degrees at tribal colleges and universities.

The program supports Native American students pursuing nursing, veterinary technology, and other fields at Navajo Technical College; students pursuing nursing at Oglala Lakota College; and students majoring in health-related fields at all tribal colleges.

“We are honored to continue our support of the Johnson & Johnson Tribal College Scholarship Program because it opens up doors for talented students from tribal colleges and universities to pursue health-related careers, which will ensure a more diverse health care workforce in the future,” said Anthony Carter, Vice President, Diversity & Inclusion, Johnson & Johnson.

Johnson & Johnson has been a loyal supporter of the Fund for 16 years through its corporate and employee giving programs and special event sponsorship.

“The continued scholarship support from Johnson & Johnson is making a college education possible for American Indian youth, while also helping to combat the health care disparities facing American Indians in the U.S.,” said Richard B. Williams, President and CEO of the American Indian College Fund.
