Native Americans may have less representation in U.S. public schools. The minority group comprises less than one percent of students. The drop out rate among American Indians and Alaskan natives is high and rising.  Many colleges and organizations, such as the American Indian College Fund, offer Native American scholarships. They hope to help with the cost of tuition and inspire more Native American students to continue their education. Many of these Native American scholarships are based on a student’s heritage, family background, residency status, tribe affiliation, and many other characteristics. If you know that your grandparents or parents are a part of a specific American Indian tribe, there very well may be free college dollars available to you in the form of Native American scholarships.
