Association on American Indian Affairs, Inc./David Risling Emergency Aid Scholarship

This scholarship is very limited in the amount available as well as the situation covered (eviction, utility disconnection, child removed from daycare for non-payment, some very limited car expenses for commuting students). Scholarship is for acute, temporary, unexpected emergencies that would keep students from attending school. Tuition, books, computers and other expected expenses are NOT considered emergencies. Must be Native American/Alaska Native. See our web site at http://www.indian-affairs.org for details AND call the Rockville office prior to submission to see if funding is available and if your situation qualifies as an emergency. We do not fund summer session or expenses incurred over the summer.
