We have one unwavering purpose – increasing the number of American Indians who hold college degrees. 


The American Indian College Fund invests in Native students and tribal college education to transform lives and communities.

Our goal is to increase the number of American Indians with a college degree - which is just 15% today. We are changing this number by empowering more than 4,000 American Indian students every year with scholarships and support programs, so they can complete their college and launch careers that benefit us all. Since 1989, we have provided more than 153,890  scholarships and almost $283.7  million to support American Indian students. And our goal is to double our impact in the next five years.

The Students We Serve:

  • Only 15% of American Indians earn a college degree, as they face unique challenges when seeking an education.
  • The demand for scholarships is greater than the supply due to the growing number of students seeking an education for a better life. The number of American Indians enrolled in colleges and universities has more than doubled in the past 30+ years and the number of degrees they earned has doubled in 25 years.


The American Indian College Fund (the College Fund) is the nation’s largest provider of scholarships for American Indian students. The College Fund provides an average of over 4,000 scholarships annually. The College Fund not only provides scholarships for Native students but also invests in American Indian students' post-graduate endeavors by offering career and employment readiness classes and workshops, assisting with applications and placements for internships and jobs, etc.
