Ways to Give

Empower Native Scholars Today, Tomorrow.…Forever.

American Indian Graduate Center is in its fifth decade of providing scholarships for undergraduate, graduate and professional education for Native students. When you invest through American Indian Graduate Center, 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 American Indian Graduate Center 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. American Indian Graduate Center students graduate at nearly twice the rate for American Indian and Alaska Natives outside our programs, 69% vs. 39%.


Create a legacy for generations to come. Establishing an endowed scholarship or considering American Indian Graduate Center 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.
