One of the Southwest Native American Foundation's primary goals is to assist high school seniors who are matriculating to college with scholarships. Since 2004, SWNAF has granted over $500,000 in scholarships to talented and deserving Native-American high school students. We believe strongly that these awards help a college freshman with the transition to university life. This year we hope to add even more scholarship opportunities.
Over the years, SWNAF has been honored to grant scholarships for students to attend summer programs, vocational schools, community colleges, and universities. We have presented scholarships to students from the following tribes and more: Hopi, Tewa, Ute, Navajo, Apache, Yavapai, Arapaho, Tohono O’odham, Lakota, Sioux, Yuma, Pima, Zuni, Pueblo, Hualapai and Havasupai.
