Scholarships for Native AmericansDonate
An AIS scholarship provides more than education... it plants a seed of opportunity & hope.
Over the last forty years, donations to AIS have made it possible for thousands of Native Americans to attend college, obtain degrees and, in turn, provide needed support in their communities. Your support is vital.
Meet a Donor
You couldn’t pick a better cause and you couldn’t do a better thing for young people than to help them get an education. They have got to work hard to match the funds of American Indian Services. But every little bit that anyone can contribute, I can tell you that one hundred percent of it goes to help those students. These are a magnificent people, a very bright people, they just need a chance.

Meet a Few AIS College Scholarship Recipients
UVU, Bachelor’s in Paralegal Studies
I know I would not be here, in this job I love so much if I didn’t have people who were generous in donating to American Indian Services. They don’t know me but they have faith that I can succeed.
BYU, Bachelor’s in Teaching
After graduation, I went back home and taught on the reservation and taught sixth grade and seventh grade language arts... I want to make the reservation a much better place.
BYU, Bachelor’s in Medical Assisting
My mom was a single mother and she raised us. She was a good example of hard work. I want to make her proud and also the donors who have supported me.
AIS awards thousands of partial scholarships annually
AIS has found that the most successful formula is for students to earn half or more of their own tuition. Then AIS provides a scholarship for the difference.Apply for a Scholarship
AIS Projects include:
Literacy & Mentoring (K-12)
AIS partners with the San Juan Foundation to conduct student outreach programs and education seminars and workshops around the nation.
The AIS Pre-freshman Engineering Program (PREP) teaches Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students.
These help students afford a college education. Students pay for half or more of their college tuition and the scholarship makes up the difference.
Community Outreach (other)
This includes leadership training, community development, economic development, agricultural projects and other youth programs.
American Indian Services has helped me achieve my dream. I hope to one day open my own practice.
