  • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
  • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*

  • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
  • There is no available contact information

** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

Take some time to check out other articles we offer about writing winning scholarship essays. We can also help you write a scholarship resume and learn more about how to write an essay about yourself, as well as what some of the most common scholarship essay prompts are! 

The work that you put into your scholarship applications will be noticeable. So, take your time thoroughly completing your application! And when you need more scholarships, we’ve got the guide on how to find them and win them

Financial aid tips for Native American students

Complete the FAFSA

The FAFSA or Free Application for Federal Student Aid is an essential financial aid application that all Native American students should complete. The FAFSA is important because it allows you to access need-based financial aid including Pell Grants, work study, and federal student loans.

Submit the CSS Profile (if required)

Some colleges and universities may also require an additional financial aid application: the CSS Profile. Check with any of the colleges or universities on your list to see if they require this application. Also, the deadline for the CSS Profile will vary by school and the type of application you submit (Early Decision, Regular Decision, etc).

Apply for college merit scholarships

Don’t forget to apply for college-specific merit scholarship opportunities! These scholarships are typically renewable for four years of college, so they are especially valuable for students.

Frequently asked questions

How much does the American Indian College Fund give?

The American Indian College Fund gives a wide variety of scholarships, each with different values, ranging up to a full ride for four years. Overall, they awarded over 143,000 scholarships as of 2021, and distributed over 237.1 million dollars into Native communities. Many of their scholarships are in partnership with other organizations, and as such, the values of their opportunities can vary widely. However, it is an invaluable resource that allows you to plug into many different opportunities with one application. Don’t miss out on this one!

Are there scholarships for Native students in STEM?

Yes! One great one is the American Indian Science and Engineering Society. They focus on providing students with the opportunity to engage in engineering work to benefit their communities. The American Indian College Fund has a whole list of other scholarship opportunities for Native students with different interests. It’s a great place to start looking for scholarships for Native students in STEM. You can also check our list of Top STEM scholarships.

Are there scholarships for Native women?

Yes! The Goldman Sachs MBA Program is a great one to start. Generally, most scholarships for Native students are open to all genders and sexes. So, as a Native woman, it can be a good idea to apply both to scholarships for Native students and to scholarships for women. This allows you to find opportunities for every part of your demographic. To find more scholarships that are custom-matched to your demographics and interests, you can try our free scholarship search tool. After collecting some information about you, it will auto-update vetted scholarship opportunities tailored just to your skillsets and interests.

How to find scholarships for Native students?

We may be biased, but we think that our list is a great place to start! Another great way to find scholarships for Native students is through local organizations. If you live in a community with many Native people, there are probably scholarship resources available. These are great opportunities because, since they are local, they have less applicants, and therefore a higher chance of success for each applicant.You can also reach out to the schools that you apply to. They might have special scholarships for students in a minority population, or they can steer you in the direction of an organization that does. Either the financial aid or admissions office might be able to help you with this. Be sure also to check out our article on how to find scholarships!

What are Tribal Colleges and who can go to them?

Tribal colleges are colleges throughout the United States which are owned and operated by federally recognized Indian tribes. They are typically on or near reservations. As of 2018, there were 32 accredited Tribal Colleges in the country.These colleges provide an education tailored to Native students living on reservations. They are a relatively new phenomenon; most have opened in the past 50 years. And despite the fact that they are designed for Native students, technically anyone can attend a Tribal College.
