The National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation (NAAF) promotes the development and education of Aboriginal peoples and their professional advancement in Canadian society through the implementation of such initiatives as - the Blueprint for the Future, Post-Secondary Education Program, the National Aboriginal Achievement Awards and Taking Pulse. Overall, the Foundation's programs are made possible through the generous support of the federal government, corporate sponsors, charitable foundations and individual donors.

The Foundations' core focus continues to be providing scholarships for Aboriginal students. NAAF is the largest supporter of Aboriginal education outside the federal government. Canadian Heritage has provided in 2003-04 a $12M endowment fund for the establishment of an Aboriginal Post-Secondary Scholarship Program.

An additional endowment of $10M was announced in Budget 2005. This was not accessed in 2005-06 and deferred to 2006-07 through the Annual Reference Level Update (ARLU). A Treasury Board submission is being prepared to access the funding.

This fund encourages higher levels of achievement in education to help Aboriginal Canadians gain the skills and learning needed to contribute fully to the economic life of their communities and Canadian society. More specifically, the scholarship program assists Status Indian, Non-Status Indian, Mtis and Inuit post-secondary students engaged in fields of study that support and contribute to Aboriginal self-government and economic self-government.
