Graduate Scholarships: How to Apply
The AIEF program now offers competitive graduate scholarships* to eligible American Indian/Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian students pursuing a Masters or Doctoral degree.**
Applications submitted by eligible graduate students each spring are reviewed by members of the Scholarship Committee, who award the competitive grants. We will provide $1,000 to $2,000 per scholarship for graduate students who are attending or have been accepted to an accredited graduate school. The scholarship is paid directly to each recipient’s college or university.
Scholarship Application Process
All students who meet the above criteria are encouraged to apply for a Graduate Scholarship.
Awarded students will be notified by July 15th if they have been selected to receive a scholarship. Due to administrative costs, we do not notify non-awarded students.
* AIEF also offers Undergraduate Scholarships.
** We do not fund online postsecondary institutions.
