  • Scholarship Description
  • AAIA is grateful for the vision and generosity of Mrs. Van Pelt and the Adolph Van Pelt Foundation in planning for the higher education of Native students. Without those like Mrs. Van Pelt and the Foundation, AAIA would not be able to provide as many scholarships to Native students seeking a higher education. This scholarship is for undergraduate students from federally recognized tribes.

    All AAIA Applicants must be enrolled members within their respective tribe from continental US tribes or Alaska Native, submit a copy of tribal enrollment (there is no minimum blood quantum requirement for eligibility) and be enrolled as full-time students for both fall and spring semesters. Applicants must attend an accredited institution and be seeking an Associate's Degree or higher (AAIA does not fund certificate programs or seminaries).
