The Northern Arizona Native-American Foundation (TNANAF) was founded in 2005 to provide scholarships and scientific educational opportunities for secondary students from the tribes in Northern Arizona. The tribes of Northern Arizona include, but are not limited to, the Apache, Havasupai, Hopi, Hualapai, Navajo, Paiute, Navajo, and Yavapai. The need for such an organization was apparent based on the statistics of talented students from the tribes not continuing their education after high school.

In September, 2005 the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) granted 501 3 (c) tax status to The Northern Arizona Native-American Foundation (TNANAF). As a legal non-profit organization, all donations to TNANAF are tax-deductible.

Since TNANAF's founding, scholarships have been provided to graduating seniors to Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and the University of Arizona in Tucson. In 2006, $750 in scholarships was awarded. This year, $10,000 in scholarships was awarded. We look to keep growing in this capacity.

As for the future, we hope to add more opportunities for students, such as connecting them to summer learning opportunities like Open Roads and to study abroad opportunities like Thinking Beyond Borders. We also hope to bring speakers into the schools to discuss the role of higher education and the speakers' own educational journeys. We also welcome ideas.
