  • 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.

Applicants must attend an accredited institution and be seeking an Associate's Degree or higher (AAIA does not fund certificate programs or seminaries).
