Description: AHLEF offers many scholarship opportunities to incoming freshman through graduate students. This scholarship is for American Indian and Alaskan Native undergraduate and graduate students who are pursuing a degree in health or science curriculums. Scholarships range from $500 to $7,500.

Application requirements for the Elizabeth and Sherman Asche Memorial Scholarship are:

  • Application form
  • Essay
  • Tribal ID
Additional Information: Students are eligible to receive one scholarship per year. The AAIA does not fund certificate programs or seminary. The AAIA also does not fund summer session. Funding is for both fall and spring semesters; the AAIA does not fund semesters separately. During the second round of the application process, the AAIA takes everything into consideration when assessing the student's application package including merit and need. Students must have a minimum of $750 need per semester to be eligible. Other scholarships, loans, or monies do not disqualify students from receiving an award, nor does lack of funding automatically qualify students for an award.

Award Amount: $1,500 annually, non-renewable. Checks are mailed directly to the school twice per year (Sept. 30 and Jan. 31). Disbursement of spring checks is dependent upon submission and review of satisfactory fall grades and a full-time spring schedule. Students may reapply each year; however, receipt of a subsequent award is not guaranteed.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $1,500.
