Established in 1984, AISES’ Government Relations Council (GRC) is comprised of U.S. Government employees. Its purpose is to establish working relationships between agencies and AISES. The GRC works to identify government resources, develop strategies, and promote government careers in furthering AISES’ mission by working to:

  •  Place American Indians and Alaska Natives into government jobs, by working closely with the AISES Student Chapters, tribal colleges, and other colleges with high Native enrollment
  •  Coordinate and participate in government sponsored workshops at the AISES National Conference and Regional Conferences
  •  Identify federal funding opportunities for AISES
  •  Support student and professional chapter events
  •  Identify federal internship and employment programs
