2023 Fall Scholarship Awards Luncheon
Mon, September 18, 12:00 pm–1:00 pm
Join the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) for the 2023 Fall IAIA Student Awards Luncheon on Monday, September 18, at Noon in the Performing Arts and Fitness Center (PAFC) Gymnasium. The event will be livestreamed on the IAIA website and on the official IAIA Facebook page.
Receiving scholarships is an exciting achievement for all college students—for many students it’s an award that validates their hard work, and for others a scholarship is proof that they have support in the IAIA community. For some students, receiving a scholarship defines their educational path as it determines whether or not they stay on track for their anticipated graduation year.
“I wasn’t planning on coming back next semester,” said Soledad Flores Gudino, class of 2025. “My family and I are dealing with a lot of money issues right now, and I didn’t think it was going to be possible to come back. This scholarship takes a lot of weight off my shoulders. I no longer have to worry about whether or not I’ll be able to continue at IAIA.”
Xeneca LeClair (Otoe-Missouria), class of 2023 shared how she wishes to spread love and joy with her art work. “These donors have given me hope again,” LeClair said. “This scholarship helps me continue living my dreams and creating my art.”
