  • 1. • native american scholarships and grants - native american scholarships and grants : american Indian (Native American) Scholarships• American Indians face a unique set of challenges in gaining access to a college education and are one of the most underrepresented groups both in college and in the degree-holding population. With extreme poverty and limited access to educational resources remaining persistent problems on reservations and educated professionals also in short supply in many communities, education is a pressingconcern for the American Indian community. Despite a strong desire to earn a degree, many American Indian students find themselves in a position where they cannot easily pay for school, even with the help of federal student financial aid. Luckily, American Indian scholarship opportunities exist for those students who are dedicated to beating the odds and earning a degree.• A variety of American Indian scholarships exist to help students attain a college education that will benefit not only them, but their families and communities. In some instances, tribal scholarships or other local scholarships are availableto American Indian students, though often the award amounts fall significantly shy of the actual cost of attending college. Numerous national American Indianscholarship providers offer more substantial awards to deserving students. American Indian students often qualify for other scholarships for minorities, as well. These awards are often the most substantial, though also the most competitive.• As an American Indian student, you needn’t limit your scholarship search solely to awards based on ethnicity, though. Other national and campus-based programs also serve American Indians. Scholarships and grants for low-income or first-generation students are options for many American Indian students who meet those criteria. American Indian students who do well academically or athleticallyshouldn’t rule out finding scholarships based on those characteristics, either. If you start early and thoroughly investigate scholarship options, you will be able to fund your education with American Indian scholarships and other financial aid.• RTNDA Ed Bradley Broadcast Journalism Scholarship• Application Deadlines: May 31, Annually• A $10,000 award established by 60 Minutes Correspondent Ed Bradley.
