Native Forward Is Our New Name

We believe higher education deepens our transformative impact on every part of society. Knowledge and experience are powerful tools that can advance and preserve our way of life.

50

YEARS

Making a Difference for Over 50 Years

We award $15 million in scholarships annually and have awarded over $350 million since the beginning. For 50 years, Native Forward has empowered Native students from over 500 Tribes in all 50 states.

I see the disconnect and disparities for Native students and STEM. I want to help bridge that gap between Native communities and science. We have the opportunity to solve a lot of the problems facing Indian Country. It just takes time and the skills.

“I am proud to call myself a Native Forward scholar and forever grateful to Native Forward Scholars Fund for the assistance and nurturing of my development. I will continue to extend to others the generosity given to me.”
