Deadline: June 1, 2013
The AIGC Fellowship program provides approximately $1,200,000 in fellowships to over 400 American Indian and Alaska Native graduate and professional students each year. Graduate fellowships are monetary awards made to American Indian and Alaska Native graduate or professional degree-seeking students, who meet all eligibility criteria. The fellowship amount is typically between $1000 and $5000 per academic year (not including summer), and varies from year to year, depending on the number of qualified applicants, the availability of funds and unmet financial need.
To be considered, applicants must be:
- Pursuing a post-baccalaureate graduate or professional degree as a full time student at an accredited institution in the U.S.;
- Able to demonstrate financial need through submission of the AIGC Financial Need Form (FNF), and;
- An enrolled member of a federally recognized American Indian or Alaska Native group, or provide documentation of descent (possess one-fourth degree verifiable federally recognized Indian blood) as verified through submission of a Tribal Eligibility Certificate (TEC).
This opportunity will become available on December 15, 2012 for the academic year 2013 – 2014 for new applicants; and close on June 1, 2013 to allow time for scholar selection. Continuing Scholars will receive an email with further instructions.
