DENVER Cargill donated $50,000 to the American Indian College Fund to continue the Cargill Tribal College Scholarship Program. The program provides scholarships to Native students attending tribal colleges and universities in Kansas, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
The scholarships benefit fulltime Native students majoring in finance, accounting, engineering, science, business, agriculture, and business-focused computer technology.
“We are thankful that Cargill is helping the American Indian College Fund to further the education of Native students in the regions they serve and in these important fields,”
said Dr. Cheryl Crazy Bull, President and CEO of the American Indian College Fund.
“The gift of an education helps Native students to create better lives for themselves, their families, and their community members.”
