Overview

Self-reported by organization

In February 2001, the Board of Directors of AIGC/AIGC Scholars voted to incorporate a second scholarship program, American Indian Graduate Center Scholars (AIGC/AIGC Scholars). AIGC/AIGC Scholars is a partnership with the United Negro College Fund to administer the Gates Millennium Scholarship Program. While the two programs are incorporated and reported as separate entities, both operate under a common Board of directors, management team and policies and procedures.
