The American Indian Graduate Center (AIGC) of Albuquerque, NM announces the availability of graduate fellowships for American Indian and Alaskan Native students from federally-recognized U.S. tribes.

American Indians continue to be the least represented of all minority groups in the country in medicine, business, law, the sciences and other fields requiring advanced degrees. AIGC was founded to help open the doors to graduate education for American Indians and to help tribes obtain the educated Indian professionals they need to be-come more self-sufficient and exercise their rights to self-determination.
