Supporting Native students has never been more vital

The COVID-19 pandemic is continuing to increase the challenges Native scholars face as they pursue college degrees, but that isn't stopping them. This year, the College Fund has received its second-highest number of scholarship applications in our 30-year history, proving that Native scholars aren't backing down in the face of uncertainty.

We already know Native scholars are poised for success. We can provide the tools they need to get there by providing financial support for tuition, a laptop, or rent. Your donation will help Native scholars overcome barriers so they can stay in school and focus on the goals they are determined to achieve.

I have a lot of worries, but none are for myself. I worry about my family in Montana that live in a rural area and their access to food, water, and hygiene items. I worry for my baby nephew who needs formula. I worry for the elders who rely on food delivery systems. I worry for anyone who cannot afford to pay their rent, monthly bills, or basic necessities.
