About the GON Scholarship
 
The Gathering of Nations, a federally recognized non-profit organization founded in 1983, is proud to fund the Academic Scholarship Foundation for Native American Students at the University of New Mexico.

On December 16, 2002, the Gathering of Nations established an academic scholarship foundation for Native American students enrolled at the University of New Mexico. This Foundation is one more commitment to the Native American community and specifically for higher education for all Native American students.

We have always been about enhancing Native culture and Native lives. Education and the university experience is a healthy one. We hope that our involvement will ensure a larger number of Native American graduates with Bachelor and higher-level degrees from the University of New Mexico.

The University of New Mexico has the largest Native American student population in the world. In past years, the Gathering of Nations charities have made contributions to several individuals to pursue academics, as well as other special needs and interest.


The Gathering of Nations encourages everyone to contribute and make donations to the Scholarship fund.
