AAIA David Risling Emergency Aid Scholarship
The Association on American Indian Affairs offers David Risling Emergency Aid Scholarships in amounts ranging from $100-400 for acute, temporary emergencies (eviction, dismissal from daycare, utility disconnection, etc). This scholarship is available during both fall and spring semesters for expenses accured during the fall and spring semesters only.
