ECA Scholarship Fund

Financial hardship is often cited as the reason why Native students do not enter college even when they are accepted. Also, financial hardship can cause students to drop out once they have enrolled. The Early College Academy Scholarship Fund allows students to concentrate on their education, free of financial worries.
