NEWS STORY: SCHOLARSHIPS FOR STUDENTS GOING UNCLAIMED!

Click here for details and list!


Federal Student Aid News from Secretary Duncan
Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step toward getting financial aid for college, career school, or graduate school. The FAFSA not only gives you access to the $150 billion in grants, loans, and work-study funds that the federal government has available, but many states, schools, and private scholarships require you to submit the FAFSA before they will consider you for any financial aid they offer.
Whether you're filling out the FAFSA for yourself, helping your child, or are in a position to help others fill out the FAFSA, we have the resources for you.
The FAFSA is free and only takes an average of only 23 minutes to complete. Get started at www.FAFSA.gov.

Scholarship Announcement

The American Indian Education Foundation is dedicated to serving Native American students who have resided on reservations across the country. Every year we are able to grant over $200,000 worth of awards. Because so many Native American students are faced with financial hurdles when planning their journey through college, the AIEF wants to do everything we can do to support these students.

In addition to monetary funding, the AIEF provides a mentoring component to the students who are participating in our program. Throughout the year students are supported by us through care packages, phone calls, birthday cards and whatever else we can do to make their time in college more comfortable.

Applicant Criteria:

  • Native American or Alaska Native descent
  • Attending an accredited or 2 or 4 year college/university or
  • technical/vocational school
  • Must be enrolled as a full-time student
  • An ACT score or 14 or above is desirable
  • Scholarships are only for undergraduate studies.
