The American Indian College Fund (the College Fund) invests in Native students and tribal college education to transform lives and communities. The College Fund provides scholarships and programming for American Indian and Alaska Native students to access resources and support to succeed in their college education.

This grant supports Ihduwiyayapi: Advancing Indigenous Early Childhood Education. Through this project, the College Fund convenes a learning community of early childhood education departments at tribal colleges where faculty share strategies to develop culturally affirming indigenous child development pedagogy and supports, with the goal of training the next generation of teachers for early learners.
