Catching the Dream, formerly known as the Native American Scholarship Fund, makes grants to Native college students and works to improve Indian schools. Since 1986, CTD has made scholarship awards to 960 students and has produced 552 graduates. Our completion rate is 85%, a very high rate compared to the 18% completion rate that prevails nationwide with Native students. Contrary to what students often think, CTD rewards students for finding and winning scholarships. Many students think the fewer scholarships they find and win, the more we will like it. The opposite is true. The more scholarships you find and win, the more we like it, and the more money we will give you. Our ultimate goal is to have you being able to go to college with no loans and have your expenses totally covered.

Many students think they cannot afford to go to Stanford or Harvard. The total cost for a year at the Ivy League colleges is now $42,000. But really solid, hardworking, dedicated, serious students can win enough money in scholarships to be able to attend Stanford or Harvard. The secret is scholarships.

We will help students with their scholarship search, with their scholarship planning, and with their essay. We will help you with your essay at any time. Our critique of it is free! Please call us with any questions whatsoever. Nothing is too unimportant to ask us about. The only silly or stupid question is the one you do not ask. Please use us freely as a resource. (Send it to Dean Chavers in Word format only.)

We require students to apply to all other sources of funds before they apply to CTD. This includes financial aid, college work study, Perkins and Stafford loans, tribal scholarships, and other scholarships. We want students to be able to go to Stanford Medical School, not have to take out any loans, and still be able to give their momma money.

 

 

 

RACISM
IN
INDIAN
COUNTRY

By Dr. Dean Chavers

Dr. Dean Chavers is Director of Catching the Dream, formerly known as Native American Scholarship Fund. He holds a doctorate and two Master’s degrees from Stanford University. He is a former college professor and college president and the leader of the Exemplary Programs in Indian Education (EPIE) movement.

“Racism in Indian Country”is long overdue. Dean Chavers presents a picture of racism, exposing the heart of Indian Country. Native Americans do not have constitutional protections to this day. This is a necessary history for the healing and recovery of Indian people. We need to break the cycle of slow death and start living again.
