American Indian Graduate Center Fellowships

Description: 
AIGC was established in 1969 to assist American Indian college graduates desiring to continue their education at the master's, doctorate and professional degree level who need financial support. American Indians continue to be the least represented of all minority groups in the country in medicine, business, law, science and other fields requiring advanced degrees. AIGC was founded to help open the doors to graduate education for American Indians and to help tribes obtain the educated Indian professionals they need; to become more self-sufficient and exercise their rights to self-determination.
Qualifications: 
Applicants must be pursuing a post baccalaureate graduate or professional degree as a full time student at an accredited institution in the U.S., be able to demonstrate financial need, and be an enrolled member of a federally recognized American Indian tribe or Alaska Native group, or provide documentation of descendency (possess 1/4 degree federally-recognized Indian blood).
