Scholarship Outreach Grants for California Tribes

Pechanga Outreach Grant 2021

Watch our California Tribal Scholarship Webinar from MARCH 24, 2021

Since 2019, the American Indian College Fund has offered most California tribal members up to $20,000 in annual scholarship support to earn a college degree or certificate through the Wi’áaşal (Great Oak) Future Leaders Scholarship. This has resulted in an investment of more than $2 Million in scholarships in the past two years, and we want to help even more Native students (visit to learn more).

The application for 2021-2022 funding is NOW OPEN, and this year we’re investing even more to help you connect this critical funding to your tribal members and communities. With our new Outreach Grants, you can apply for up to $1,000 and materials to promote this great opportunity. Just fill out the short application below by the March 15, 2021 deadline, and we’ll respond quickly to your request. These funds can be used for ANY effort to promote Wi’áaşal (Great Oak) Future Leaders Scholarship outreach and applications before the current cycle’s May 31, 2021 application deadline.

Please send any questions to, or call us at (800) 776-3863.
