Native Forward
Scholars Fund

A Native-led Fund providing scholarship to Indigenous scholars.

Services Provided:  Website Design & Development, Brand Strategy

Native Forward Scholars Fund provides funding to Native undergraduate and graduate students. Native Forward sought to collaborate with a Native-owned website design and development firm to bring their new brand to life with an engaging website. 

On their former website, students, alumni, and sponsors had difficulties discovering the many resources available. Orca Design Group celebrated Native Forward’s new brand, picking up the blues, pinks, and purples representing Indigenous scholars’ excitement for the future, their aspirations for their communities and the Indigenous academy. 

Our process included a website audit which led to a new organizational structure for diverse audiences. Orca worked with Native Forward to make the new website easily navigable to locate scholarships and college planning tools. The site was strategically designed, combining Native Forward’s colors and brand, student and alumni photographs and including a historical timeline to embrace the organization’s long legacy.
