Wells Fargo Creates College Scholarship Fund For Native Americans

Wells Fargo Creates College Scholarship Fund For Native Americans

PORTLAND, Oregon - Wells Fargo has donated $300,000 to permanently endow a college scholarship fund that will help up to four qualifying Native American students fill unmet financial aid needs each year.

The scholarships will be available as of next September to undergraduate and graduate students nationwide, including Oregon and southwest Washington.

The American Indian Graduate Center (AIGC) will administer the Wells Fargo Scholarship for Native American College Students. AIGC is the only national non-profit organization dedicated to aiding American Indian students from undergraduate through doctorate study in all fields. Students must have at least a 3.0 grade point average or better, be at least a college junior, and major in business, finance or gaming and hospitality.

More information and the application form are available online at www.aigc.com.

"Wells Fargo is making a meaningful gift to support deserving American Indian students who will become the future business leaders of our Pacific Northwest Tribal communities," said Chandra Hampson, a former AIGC scholarship recipient who now manages Wells Fargo's Native American Banking Services for the Pacific Northwest.

"AIGC's ongoing mission to advance self-sufficiency and self-determination within all Native American communities matches Wells Fargo's commitment to advance education and economic development in every community where we live, work, and do business," Hampson said.

Wells Fargo delivers capital and financial services to more than 150 Tribal Nations through a team of specialized Relationship Managers comprising its Native American Banking Services. The company also has more banking stores on Indian reservations than any other financial institution.

Through its targeted programs alone, Wells Fargo has lent more than $1.8 billion to tribes and Native Americans, is one of the primary providers of financial services in Indian Country and a leading lender to the tribal gaming industry. Wells Fargo has more than 1,800 Native American team members, with five Team Member Resource groups for Native Peoples in Alaska, Arizona, California, New Mexico and South Dakota.
