US Government Grants For Minorities 2015

Millions Of Dollars In Government Grants recently released For African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, American Indians and practically any other minority group.

 

Who Qualifies for Minority Grants?

 

The government and foundations across the U.S. offer certain grants that benefit minority populations in different fields of work, businesses, and research groups.  Although there are various minority grants available, in order for you to qualify, you must meet the eligibility requirements.     

 

African Americans

 

African Americans have experienced an increase in college grant opportunities over the last decade, including:  

 

  1. United Negro College Fund
  2. Frederick Douglass Scholars Program
  3. Mordecai Wyatt Johnson Program
  4. The National Black Nurses Association
  5. The March of Dimes Nursing Scholarships
  6. The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants
  7. The American Psychological Association's minority fellowship program

 

The United Negro College Fund (UNCF) is by far the most impressive minority college grant.  The UNCF was founded in 1942, but it was not until 1972 when the all time familiar phrase “a mind is a terrible thing to waste” came into acknowledgement across the U.S.  This minority college grant funds three dozen historically African American colleges and universities.   

 

Hispanic Minority Grants

 

Hispanic minority grants are few in comparison to other minitories.  The U.S. has acknowledged this deficit, contributing $15 million dollars towards start up costs for the development of Hispanic universities and colleges.  In addition to the $15 million in start up funds, the government has also contributed $70 million towards already established Hispanic universities and colleges.  The U.S. may have gotten a late start on funding this minority, but there has been dramatic enrollment with the implementation of these grants listed below:     

 

  1. Hispanic Nurses Association grants and scholarships
  2. March of Dimes Nursing Scholarship program
  3. Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students program
  4. Nursing Education Loan Repayment program
  5. The Hispanic Scholarship Fund Institute
  6. Silicon Valley Scholarship
  7. Jose Marti Challenge Grant

 

Asian Minority Grants

 

The minority grants listed below pertain to one of the fastest growing minority groups in the United States, Asians.   The Luisa Mallari Fellowship is by far the most influential Asian minority grant, which allows Asian students the opportunity to study their surrounding countries.  There are a wide variety of Asian minority grants, including:

 

  1. Association for Asian Studies, Inc
  2. Asian American Federation of New York
  3. Asian American Journalists Association
  4. Southeast Asian Studies Regional Exchange Program
  5. Luisa Mallari Fellowship

 

Native American Minority Grants

 

To qualify for Native American college grants, you must present your proof of your Certificate of Indian Blood (CIB), as well as belong to a well-recognized tribe. 

 

If you are like most Native American descendents, you will not have proof, as many tribes changed their names and did not keep documentation.  However, if you one of the few who possess a CIB and belong to a tribe, then you should qualify for the grants listed below:

 

  1. U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service: 2008 Tribal Wildlife Grants
  2. Tribal Colleges Education Equity Grants
  3. Indian Adult Education
  4. Minority Science and Engineering Improvement
  5. Special diabetes program for Indians: Diabetes Prevention & Treatment Projects

 

Disadvantaged Groups Minority Grants

 

If you have a disability, whether physical or mental, there are various grants that are specifically geared towards assisting your educational endeavors, whether for college, rehabilitation, or preschool.  Some of the most popular disadvantaged groups grants are:

 

  1. Harry Truman Scholarship Program
  2. Rehabilitation Training: Continuing Education
  3. Tech-Prep Education
  4. Training Interpreters for Individuals Who Are Deaf & Individuals Who Are Deaf-Blind
  5. Special Education Preschool Grants

 

As with all grants, you should check the eligibility requirements before applying.  The government has set aside a significant value of funds, along with other foundations, to enable minority students the opportunity to attend college and universities, perform research, and internships.
