This year, PWNA collaborated with legendary actor Wes Studi to grant two additional scholarships to Native American students from his home state.
Since Sept. 11, 2001, nearly 19 percent of Native Americans serve in the military â€” a higher rate than any other minority in America. One veteran an Purple Heart recipient is furthering his contribution to defense of our country, with support of the American Indian Education Fund (AIEF) program.
PWNA and AIEF services focus on motivating students to consider college, and helping students pay for college and stay in college until graduation, increasing both college access and retention for Native American students.
PWNAâ€™s staff, Board of Directors and partners are aligned around a mission that respects the self-determined goals and rights of tribes, as we listen and learn about the solutions that are working in their communities.
