Scholarships

I want to let you all know that All Nations Circle has enough money for 3 more $500.00 scholarships for college students that needs to be dispensed by the end of October this year.

We know that there are many who are not 'recognized' by tribes but who have native blood and a desire to honor that. Awards are paid to the school on behalf of the… Continue
