SPONSORSHIP LEVELS AND BENEFITS
The value of a leader often lies in how well they know themselves and those that
they serve. Leadership is not linear but rather a collection of one’s beliefs, values
and how they handle interpersonal relationships. While American Indian Graduate
Center continues to lead the industry in financially supporting Native students in their
educational journey, we also understand the importance of fostering and developing our
students’ leadership skills as they become business, political and community leaders.
We invite you to partner with us as we host our 2022 Indigenous Leadership Summit.
This year’s summit will engage 75 Indigenous college students as they explore areas
of leadership and Indigenous leadership. Throughout the two-week virtual summit
students will be provided tools and lessons ranging from:
Identifying and examining leadership styles
Time Management and identifying priorities
Comparing and balancing Western vs Indigenous leadership
Identifying community goals (values, challenges, mission)
Creating a service-learning project for their respective communities
Summit participants will complete the summit with the tools, strategies and knowledge
to return to their campuses and communities and implement what they learned to uplift
themselves and those around them. We look forward to partnering with you as we
continue our 50-year legacy of supporting and empowering Native students.
The American Indian Graduate Center & AIGCS are the largest scholarship
providers to Native students in the U. S. We award $15 million in scholarships
annually to students from 500 tribes in 50 states and have awarded over $350
million since inception.
We provide support for American Indians and Alaska Natives seeking higher
education, and support them in attaining undergraduate, graduate, and
professional degrees. We partner with Tribes, tribal entities, the federal
government, foundations, corporations, and individuals to ensure the growth and
sustainability of scholarships.
Building on a 50-year legacy, AIGC will continue to be the premier national
resource in funding and empowering the next generation of Native leaders across
all sectors, by meeting the unmet need of every Native American student.
