Full Circle & Tribal College Scholarships
The American Indian College Fund provides scholarships to American Indian and Alaska Native college students seeking undergraduate and graduate degrees at tribal colleges, nonprofit, and accredited schools.
Free Scholarship Webinar
The American Indian College Fund’s (College Fund) scholarship season opens on February 1. Hundreds of scholarships are available for all areas of study under the Full Circle Scholarship Program, and students attending tribal colleges and universities can receive additional scholarship support with the program. Any Native American U.S. citizen who is an enrolled member, or descendant of an enrolled member of a state or federally recognized tribe may apply. Applicants must also have a minimum 2.0 grade point average and plan to enroll as a full-time student at a nonprofit, accredited college or university.
To help students understand the application process and the many scholarships available to them, the College Fund is hosting a free scholarship kick-off webinar at 6:00 p.m. MST on February 1. Prizes will also be awarded at the event.
Any Native American U.S. citizen that is a member or descendant of a state or federally recognized tribe with at least a 2.0 grade point average, and enrolled as a full-time student can apply for a scholarship.
