American Indian Graduate Center (AIGC) Graduate Creative and Performing Arts Fellowship
Please consult the program website to confirm program details, including applicable deadlines.
The American Indian Graduate Center provides the Elizabeth Furbur graduate fellowship to Native American women studying the fine or performing arts, literature, creative writing or poetry. The fellowship amount is typically between $1,000 and $5,000 per academic year, and varies from year to year, depending on the availability of funds and unmet financial need as determined by the student's financial aid office. AIGC does not, however, fund the full amount of unmet need. Applicant must be an enrolled member of a federally recognized American Indian or Alaska Native group, or provide documentation of descendency (possess one-fourth degree federally recognized Indian blood)--and must be enrolled full-time or be applying as a full-time student in a master's, doctoral, or professional degree program in a supported field. A Tribal Eligibility Certificate (TEC) must be submitted on the applicant's behalf by a Tribal Enrollment Office or USDI-Bureau of Indian Affairs Agency. Applicant must file a FAFSA, and the Office of Financial Aid must certify the amount of"Financial Need." Deadline usually in the Spring.
