About Eve’s Fund 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 whom have received a scholarship for each of their four years at Navajo Preparatory School. 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.
