USA Funds awards AICF $100K for marketing, scholarships
DENVER – The American Indian College Fund was recently awarded $100,000 from the USA Funds for marketing and scholarship support.
“USA Funds has been a key partner in helping us to support Native scholarships, making the possibility of a college degree possible for people in our communities, where few can afford to attend college without financial assistance,” AICF President and CEO Dr. Cheryl Crazy Bull said. “We are grateful for their continued support and commitment to Indian education.”
Half of the funds given to the AICF paid for sponsored marketing to create awareness about the AICF and raise scholarship support for Native students attending tribal colleges and universities across the country.
An additional $50,000 of the funds were presented to benefit the Richard B. Williams-Seventh Generation Leadership Endowment Scholarship, which was established to honor a former AICF president and CEO.
“The American Indian College Fund is committed to helping Native students achieve the dream of a postsecondary education,” USA Funds President and CEO Carl Dalstrom said. “That mission is in line with USA Funds' mission to enhance preparation for, access to and success in postsecondary education, specifically for low-income students, students of color, and students who are the first in their families to attend college.”
