Outside Scholarships

Scholarship opportunities are posted to the AISC Facebook page and distributed to students in the AISC newsletter and/or weekly email. Each spring, the AISC hosts a scholarship night(s) to assist you with your scholarship application and tribal higher education application. We strongly encourage your attendance.

This is a collection of scholarships that are available to students. It has scholarships that are specific to areas such as finance or medicine and scholarships available for graduate/professional students. Some of the scholarships are specific to Native/minority students, and there are some for South Dakota students. Be sure to check the requirements as some do require tribal identification. Many of these links have more than one scholarship listed. Refer to the AIECC Facebook page for current scholarship opportunities.
