American Indian Fellowship in Business Scholarship
Each year, the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development awards five scholarships to American Indian college or graduate students majoring in business. Scholarships are awarded at the Indian Progress in business (INPRO) awards banquet. In addition to the scholarship, recipients are provided airfare and lodging to attend INPRO. Recipients must be able to attend.
Eligible students must be enrolled full-time at the junior, senior or graduate level. Applicants must submit the application, as well as a statement requesting consideration and stating their reasons for pursuing higher education, their plans following completion of their degree and any other relevant information such as activities and commitment to the community. Submitted applications must include separate essays (250 words each) that specifically address community involvement, personal challenges and business experience (paid or volunteer) criteria to earn maximum points. Applications are judged primarily on achievement and commitment to the community. Transcripts (official or unofficial) and documentation of tribal enrollment must accompany the application.
