Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarships
The Association on American Indian Affairs Scholarship Recipients are awarded a scholarship twice per year until they graduate, as long as the student maintains a strong GPA and status as a full-time student. The Association Scholarship focuses on students who wish to obtain a degree and will work to serve their communities and Indian Country as a whole.
Look for the Association's Scholarship Program Application in mid-May of every year on our website. AAIA will open up the application process for 30 days.
Calling All Former AAIA Scholarship Recipients
We are often asked if we ever hear from our previous scholarship recipients. If you were a previous AAIA scholarship recipient, please send us an update about what you are currently doing. We would love to hear from you and be able to let others know how our students are making a difference in Indian Country and the world!
For many years AAIA has provided small seed grants to Tribes and Native-run organizations for their youth summer camp programs that focus on language preservation, cultural preservation or diabetes education/youth health and wellness. Our summer camp budget is small. We rely on outside funding sources and are extremely grateful for the generosity of our donors. Because we depend on outside resources, our ability to fund summer camps may change from year to year. Summer Camp grant applications are due on or about April 1 of every year.
