Scholarships for Alaska Natives

Another diverse group of indigenous American people, Alaska Natives refers to the descendants of the original people of Alaska. It’s an umbrella that includes several tribes such as the Iñupiat, Yupik, Aleut, Eyak, Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian. Much like other Native American groups and minorities, there is a lack of representation and access to higher education for Alaska Natives. To redress this, many government and private organizations have established scholarships to help Alaska Native students fund their education at college or university. If you're looking for scholarships in Alaska, head over to our state-specific page.
