We have one unwavering purpose – increasing the number of American Indians who hold college degrees. Currently only 14.5% of American Indians have a college degree – less than half the national average. Every year, we empower more than 4,000 American Indian students to start and stay in school, complete their degrees and launch careers that benefit us all. We have provided 143,281 scholarships and $237.1 million to support American Indian communities. We intend to double our impact in the next five years. Join us and help a student today.
HOW WE USE OUR FUNDS
We’re determined to help more American Indian students complete college degrees. Considering that 42% of Native Americans are 24 years old or younger, now is the time to make an incredible impact for this generation and generations to come.
We’re building on a sustainable future.
within the Last Two Years
We are the nation’s largest and highest-rated American Indian nonprofit organization changing the face of higher education today – one American Indian at a time. We provide more scholarships to American Indians than anyone else, and we’re the only organization that enhances this individualized financial support by funding accredited, tribally controlled colleges and universities and contributing to programs that ensure student success — starting before the first day of preschool and continuing beyond a student's first day of their first career job.
OUR AREAS OF IMPACT
As an independent organization, we provide direct and focused solutions to one of our nation’s most pressing problems – educating all of our American Indian youth for success in life. With your donation, we will provide more scholarships, amplify our programs, and help more American Indian students succeed.
