American Indian Graduate Center Receives Million Dollar Grant From Wells Fargo

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Dec 19, 2017 - American Indian Graduate Center (AIGC), the leading provider of scholarships for Native American and Alaska Native students in the U.S., has had the support of Wells Fargo since 2007. At that time, Wells Fargo established an endowment with AIGC to provide scholarships for higher education.

It is this kind of support that allows AIGC to award an average of $15 million annually to deserving undergraduate and graduate students. AIGC is proud to empower tribal students from 274 tribes in 43 states, with over 20 educational funding opportunities and support services.

In 2014, Wells Fargo awarded AIGC a three year, $3 million grant to provide scholarships and student services. This allowed AIGC to expand its student services to include webinars, online resources and the Know Before U Go (KBUG) program for high school students. Since the KBUG program began in 2016, AIGC has held 10 events in nine different cities and online. These events have helped 767 Native high school students and their families learn more about college preparation, financial aid and scholarships.

Wells Fargo has been a wonderful partner for AIGC and shares our vision of empowering the next generation of Native leaders through higher education.

Angelique Albert, Executive Director, AIGC

AIGC is delighted to now receive the $1 million Wells Fargo Partnership for Higher Educational Success grant. By adding this grant to the previous $3 million dollar grant, Wells Fargo has extended a three year program for an additional year.
