Scholarship Administration

American Indian Graduate Center offers 50 years of scholarship administration expertise

American Indian Graduate Center offers scholarship administration services to other organizations, including Tribes, colleges and universities, nonprofit organizations, foundations, corporations and others. We can administer programs of almost any size, from $10,000 to multiple millions. We currently administer scholarship programs for Wells Fargo, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, among others.

There are many organizations, large and small, that wish to help Native American and Alaska Native students realize their higher education dreams. Administering those scholarships can be a challenge: the rules around eligibility are in some cases complex, as are federal financial need regulations. The number of applicants may overwhelm systems and inexperienced staff. 

American Indian Graduate Center brings economies of scale and decades of experience to the process. We can ease the burden of overworked staff, reduce costs and assure compliance with all applicable regulations.
