AAIA Scholarships

Who Is Eligible:


Since 1922, the Association on American Indian Affairs has been dedicated to helping Native people and their communities in meeting the challenges they face. One of these challenges is that of paying for a higher education. AAIA assists college students in meeting this challenge through our eight scholarship programs.

AAIA offers two graduate scholarships, one scholarship which is open to graduate and undergraduate students and five undergraduate scholarships, one of which is available to students from tribes that are not federally recognized. AAIA depends on the generosity of our donors to fund our scholarship programs; therefore, availability may change from year to year.
