“Help Native Americans get through college. American Indians constitute one of the most marginalized groups in the United States today, with a high school graduation rate at Bureau of Indian Education schools of just 53 percent. Only 16 percent of American Indians have a college degree. So consider the American Indian College Fund, which supports students not only with scholarships but also with mentoring and advice on getting financial aid.”
