The American Indian College Fund honored 34 American Indian scholarship recipients at its 2013-14 Student of the Year reception at the American Indian Higher Education Consortium Student Conference in Billings, Montana on March 16. The program, sponsored by the Adolph Coors Foundation, awarded each honoree a $1,000 scholarship.

“The Adolph Coors Foundation is pleased to support the best and brightest students representing the 34 American Indian colleges. It was our pleasure to share this special evening with the award recipients, American Indian College Fund staff, and Dr. Sherry Allison. The Adolph Coors Foundation wishes all the scholarship recipients the very best in their endeavors,” said Cindy Kennedy of the Adolph Coors Foundation.

“Each year in partnership with Adolph Coors Foundation, tribal colleges and universities recognize students who represent the best of their institutions. Being the best means being culturally rooted, committed to achievement, and representing the opportunities that tribal colleges and tribal communities offer,” said Cheryl Crazy Bull, President and CEO of the American Indian College Fund.

Does anyone find it interesting that Adolf Coors Foundation (..think Coors Light) is funding these scholarships and the revenue ($) made from selling beer is being used to help (fund) these students educational endeavors? Just saying...
