Here are some of the best scholarship programs for Native Americans: (Suggested by Mandy Scott, Cherokee Nation)

The American Indian College Fund provides an opportunity for Native Americans to get a sponsored college education. They fund students attending tribal colleges and mainstream colleges to pursue undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees.

Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation supports the cause of promoting education among disadvantaged communities. Gates Millennium Scholars is a very competitive scholarship that aims at helping students with outstanding talent but who lack enough financial aid to pursue their education.

Catching the Dream is formatted in a similar way to the Gates Millennium Scholars. It is highly competitive as well. They offer university scholarships for Native American tribes, community, and tribal organizations.

Association on American Indian Affairs is another institution that offers scholarships for Native Americans from federally recognized tribes.
