The Accenture American Indian Scholarship Fund was founded to design personal and lasting relationships with students who will turn out to be the future leaders in the American Indian communities and mostly with Accenture. At that time, the scholarship desired the very brightest American Indian and Alaska Native bachelor's and master's students; however, recently, Accenture is limiting the funds to the very brightest American Indian and Alaska Native incoming freshman and bachelors students. The Accenture scholarship program is sponsored and aided by Accenture and administered by the American Indian Graduate Center.
