Welcome to American Indian Graduate Center

The American Indian Graduate Center (AIGC) is a national private 501(c)(3) non profit headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico providing fellowships to American Indian and Alaska Native graduate students throughout the United States. Established in 1969, AIGC has disbursed more than 15,000 graduate fellowships with the support of the Bureau of Indian Education, corporate and foundation partnerships, and our generous alumni and private donors.

In 2001 AIGC Scholars was incorporated as a partner in the Gates Millennium Scholars Program, to help native communities successfully access the prestigious GMS scholarship, and to provide financial and academic support to the 1500 American Indian and Alaska Native students who earn this award through 2020.
