Native American Grants

Native American Grants

Students who belong to a recognized Native American tribe are eligible for a substantial number of aid program packages. To qualify for these packages individuals must first present a Certificate of Indian Blood to show that they are indeed documented as a Native American. The U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs would be a great place to start to discover what grants are offered through the government or a private agency.

The American Indian College Fund serves as an oasis of information on grants, student information and alumni, and tribal colleges.
