Empower Native Scholars Today, Tomorrow.…Forever.

The American Indian Graduate Center (AIGC) is in its fifth decade of providing scholarships for undergraduate,  graduate, and professional education for Native students. When you invest through AIGC, you invest in a new generation of leaders for Indian Country.


Current year gifts are how we fund tuition for the current year’s scholars and provide the support services they need to stay in school.

Donating to AIGC is fast and secure.


Our students’ continuing efforts depend on your continuing support.  We measure our return on your investment (ROI) not on how many scholarships we award but on how many students graduate.  AIGC students graduate at nearly twice the rate for American Indian and Alaska Natives outside our programs, 69% vs. 39%.

Become a monthly or quarterly investor in Native Education here.


Create a legacy for generations to come.  Establishing an endowed scholarship or considering AIGC when you plan your estate is easy to do and assures Native education continues into the future.  There are many options for named and memorial scholarships, fellowships and internships.  Gifts may include cash, appreciated securities, real estate, artwork, partnership interests, life insurance, a retirement plan, or almost any asset.  Learn more by contacting Legacy@aigcs.org.
