The Association of American Indian Affairs funds scholarships for students pursuing an associate's or higher degree full-time. Eligible applicants must have enrolled tribal citizen status. AAIA's process is merit based. A 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale GPA is required. Other scholarships, loans or monies do not disqualify you from receiving an award, nor does lack of funding automatically qualify you for an award.
Scholarships are available to help Native American students attain a college education that will benefit not only them, but their families and communities. Scholarships are available before each semester and deadlines for applications are posted in the Fall and Spring.
