The American Indian College Fund is the largest of minority scholarship providers for Native American students nationwide.
Yet many qualified Native students don’t get scholarships because they don’t apply! Many forget to apply or don’t want to write an essay. As a result, they are missing out on thousands of dollars.
You don’t have to be a certified genius to get a college scholarship. We have scholarships for people studying all kinds of subjects from every background imaginable.
- New year, new money! American Indian College Fund scholarship applications are accepted every year beginning January 1. Make a resolution to start the on-line application every year at this time.
- Get help with your essay. Visit your college’s writing center for help writing your essay. Keep an electronic copy that you can upload for the American Indian College Fund applications and others. Once it’s done, you don’t need to write a new essay for every scholarship or every year. Modify it.
- More applications mean more chances for more money. Use your application to apply for as many scholarships as possible. The American Indian College Fund requires one application for the American Indian College Fund Scholarships and another for its Full Circle Scholarships. Each application qualifies you for consideration for ALL scholarships available in each category.
- Ask questions! The financial aid officer at your college and the American Indian College Fund are here to help you. We want you to succeed! Please ask if you need help or have questions.
