American Indian Success Program (AIS)
The American Indian Success Program is designed to support and foster the educational success of American Indian students attending Minneapolis Community and Technical College (Minneapolis College). Our goal is to create a strong and united cultural community on campus that contributes to the retention, graduation and personal growth of Native students.
The program provides comprehensive support services, from admission to graduation, that specifically address the needs of American Indian students and affirm their Native cultural identity.
Financial aid and Tribal scholarships
We work directly with tribal scholarships and the Minnesota Indian Scholarship Program. We can also assist you with the federal and state grant processes.
Student leadership opportunities
Leadership development is offered through the United Nations of Indian Tribes for Education (UNITE) student group. Opportunities are available for American Indian students to plan and organize annual cultural events on campus, participate in the Student Senate, become a student officer with UNITE and work with the larger Twin Cities American Indian community.
