Examples of Native American scholarships
If you're a Native American, there are special scholarship opportunities available. The federal and state governments, tribal councils, and schools recognize that Native American students are under-represented on many college campuses.
Scholarships for Native Americans are specific and can be competitive. Consider the following options.
- The American Indian College Fund caters specifically to American Indian or Alaskan Native students attending or looking to attend tribal colleges or accredited public and non-profit private colleges.
- The Bureau of Indian Affairs offers supplemental financial assistance to eligible American Indian or Alaskan Native scholars seeking a college degree.
