Deadline June 1, 2014

The AIGC Cobell Graduate Scholarships are monetary awards made to American Indian and Alaska Native graduate or professional full-time, degree-seeking students, who meet all eligibility criteria. The scholarship amount is not determined until mid-August and may vary from year to year, depending on the number of qualified applicants, the availability of funds and unmet financial need.

In the inaugural year (2014-2015), awards will be based on existing AIGC criteria; however, the Cobell Board of Trustees may develop additional or different criteria in the future.

To be considered, applicants must be:

  • Pursuing a post-baccalaureate graduate or professional degree and BE A full-time student at an accredited institution in the U.S.;
  • Able to demonstrate financial need through submission of the AIGC Financial Need Form (FNF) and
  • An enrolled member of a federally recognized American Indian or Alaska Native group, or provide documentation of descent (possess one-fourth degree verifiable federally recognized Indian blood) as verified through submission of a Tribal Eligibility Certificate (TEC).

The deadline to apply is June 1, 2014.  For more information, please click here.
