AIAI

The Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians (AIAI) is a Political Territorial Organization (PTO) established in 1969, to represent their seven Member First Nation communities at all levels of government. AIAI represents approximately 20,000 Status Fist Nation people from Batchewana First Nation, Caldwell First Nation, Delaware Nation Moravian of the Thames, Oneida Nation of the Thames, Wahta Mohawks, Hiawatha First Nation, and Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte (Tyendinaga).

PURPOSE

The AIAI Health Scholarship Award was created in 1989 to promote and recognize First Nations excellence in a Health or Traditional Healing post-secondary program. Ultimately, we strive to increase the number of First Nations people entering into a health profession as their career goal. The successful applicants (2) will receive the $1000 Health Scholarship and honourable recognition by AIAI’s Grand Chief at the 2017 Annual General Assembly. At the request of the AIAI Chiefs Council two (2) scholarships will be awarded at $1,000.00 each.
