Educational Programs & Opportunities
Indian Educational Scholarship Opportunities
Educational Scholarship Indian Reciprocity Program: Encourage Youth to enter law, politics, environment, trade & technical
schools with a return investment scholarship program.
Encourage Youth to pursue higher educational careers that will serve their people and culture with a return investment scholarship
program. This program would provide four to eight years of college with books, tuition and an adequate living pension. The
recipient would be obligated to serve four years within ten years after graduation to their rez, tribe or nation.

This program is a rough plan to stimulate more discussion regarding the idea of giving assistance to ones own tribal community
in return for the tribes educational assistance. Understand the student would not have to take out student loans thus be burdened
with financial debt upon graduation.
Our Web Site “4AIHF.org” has numerous grants, scholarships and fellowship information to assist any youth who
desires higher education but does not know where to start.
