About Eve’s Fund’s Scholarship Program
The founders of Eve’s Fund for Native American Health Initiatives, the late Dr. Robert Crowell and Barbara Crowell Roy, established the scholarship program in 2011 to honor the memory of their daughter Eve Erin Crowell and to address the significant educational needs of high school students on the Navajo Nation. With support from Eve’s Fund, Navajo Prep helps students prepare for success in college and life beyond.
Since its establishment, Eve’s Fund Scholarship has awarded $60,250 in scholarships to
46 students, some of who have received a scholarship for each of their four years at Navajo Preparatory School. This academic year, 2020-2021, is the tenth year Navajo Prep students will receive scholarship support from Eve’s Fund, and some students will receive financial aid for each of their four years at Navajo Prep.
To be eligible for assistance from Eve’s Fund, applicants must demonstrate financial need, scholastic potential, and leadership skills. Each Navajo Prep scholarship recipient receives $1,000 or $800 (for day students) to cover the school’s required student fees. Scholarship recipients are selected based on application and supporting materials.

SY 2020-2021 Award Recipient:
SY 2019-2020 Award Recipient: Shayleigh Jim
SY 2018-2019 Award Recipient: Baahozohnii Largo
Clans: Ashiihi, Kinyaanii, Todichinii, Tsayiskidnii
“Hello, my name is Baahozohnii Largo. I come from a small community called Casamero Lake. Most of the people in my community never attended college or finished high school. I feel like me receiving this scholarship would help kids understand that they don’t have to be rich to get a good education and that they start taking education seriously. I hope to achieve a lot of things. For one I would like to get all A’s. For higher education I’m currently aiming for LA Film School. There I hope to study animation, audio technology, and graphic designing. I feel like this scholarship will help bring me one step closer by eliminating some financial hardships. Now I can apply myself more towards my academics and hopefully, accomplish my goals. Thank you very much San Juan Rotary Club for supporting my efforts in school.”
