American Indian College Fund Think Scholarships
The American Indian College Fund (the College Fund) provides scholarships to American Indian and Alaska Native students attending tribal colleges and universities. The College Fund also provides a limited number of scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students attending accredited public and non-profit private colleges across the United States. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider’s website.
Full Circle scholarship applications are accepted from students beginning January 1 and ending May 31 of each year. The American Indian College Fund determines student eligibility and awards the scholarships. All applicants are emailed an award or denial notice by August. Those applicants who are chosen to receive a scholarship will also receive a mailed notice to the address listed on their applications.
