  • Scholarship Description
  • A highly-educated American Indian population is vital for improving the economic sufficiency and prosperity of American Indian communities located within the state of Washington. To this end, Washington State, in collaboration with the American Indian Community and other private sector partners, established the American Indian Endowed Scholarship (AIES). This program provides educational scholarships on a competitive basis to high-achieving, low-income resident students who have close social and cultural ties to an American Indian tribe or community within the state. Recipients demonstrate academic merit and a commitment to serve the American Indian communities in Washington.

    Students must have close cultural and social ties to an American Indian tribe and/or American Indian community in Washington State. The endowment fund is comprised of monies contributed by the state and matched by private donors. Donors include individuals, corporations, and tribes. The interest earnings are used each year to award scholarships to financially needy, full-time students who agree to use their education to benefit other American Indians.

    The scholarship, which ranges from $500-$2,000 annually, may help defray educational expenses for up to five (5) years. Thirteen (13) students will receive the scholarship.

September 6, 2016

by Susan Dutca

It's not feasible to do 10 campus visits in only 5 days - unless you're willing and able to pay for a private jet that costs more than college tuition itself. Magellan Jets offers a college tour package to "decrease both the headache and the time spent on college campus visits."
