Overview:

The Accenture American Indian Scholarship Fund was established to build personal and lasting relationships with students who will become the future leaders in the American Indian communities and possibly with Accenture. At that time, the scholarship sought the very brightest American Indian and Alaska Native undergraduate and graduate students; however, recently, Accenture is limiting the funds to the very brightest American Indian and Alaska Native incoming freshman and undergraduate students. The Accenture scholarship program is sponsored and funded by Accenture and administered by the American Indian Graduate Center.

Each academic year, Accenture selects students who demonstrate character, personal merit and commitment to the American Indian community locally and/or nationally. Merit is demonstrated through leadership in school, civic and extracurricular activities, academic achievement, and motivation to serve and succeed.
