Ford Motor Tribal Scholarship is open to students who are American Indian, Alaskan Native, or Native Hawaiian. Eligible students must show leadership qualities and demonstrate financial need. Undergraduate and graduate students may apply.

The scholarship is available to Native students at a tribal college pursuing a degree in math, science, engineering, business, teacher training, or environmental science. Native mainstream university students are eligible if they are studying accounting, computer science, engineering, finance, marketing, or operations management. All applicants must be full-time students who have a GPA of 3.0 or better.

Eligible students may apply online by completing an online application, along with a copy of their transcripts, proof of tribal affiliation, a digital photo, and a Financial Needs Analysis Form which they can obtain from their financial aid office.

The American Indian College Fund was established by Ford Motor Company in 1989 to provide scholarships to American Indian/Alaska Native students attending tribal colleges, and to fund and create awareness about the accredited tribal colleges and universities that offer students access to knowledge and skills along with Native culture, language, and values.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in MAY of each year, and the award amount is usually $3,000.
