National Indian Education Association (NIEA)
The mission of the National Indian Education Association is to support traditional Native cultures and values, to enable Native learners to become contributing members of their communities, to promote Native control of educational institutions and to improve educational opportunities and resources for American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians throughout the United States.
NIEA Student Resources serves Native students, it helps to support us in our efforts to see every American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian student excel. NIEA awards the John C. Rouillard and Alice Tonemah Memorial Scholarship each year to deserving full-time undergraduate, masters and doctoral students who are American Indian, Alaska Native or Native Hawaiian. NIEA wants to make sure that every Native student knows about other funding opportunities to help them succeed in their academic career.
