Dear American Indian Graduate Center Alumni and Supporters,
As an alumnus of the American Indian Graduate Center (AIGC), I’ve been able to experience first-hand how educational scholarship can open up so many opportunities. It is an honor and privilege to serve as the President of AIGC.
AIGC is well known for its graduate fellowships and scholarships, but just as important, there are many opportunities for undergraduate students to receive financial assistance through scholarships. In 2000 AIGC became the administrator for the Gates Millennium Scholar Program for the American Indian and Alaska Native population. In partnership with AIGC, the Gates Program undergraduate scholarships are awarded annually to ethnically diverse individuals that have demonstrated excellence in academics, leadership roles, and community involvement. Additionally, AIGC also teams with Wells Fargo and Accenture to award undergraduate and graduate scholarships.
With so many opportunities for financial support for the future leaders from our Indian communities, it is critical that Alumni and supporters of the AIGC join in supporting the organization’s efforts. You can help make a difference through a donation of time or money, or simply spreading the word on the outstanding opportunities AIGC offers.
Together, along with current students, we can continue to develop AIGC, support our exceptional scholars and strengthen our communities.
David Mahooty (Pueblo of Zuni)
AIGC Board President
