What is the Wellness Center?
The San Carlos Apache Wellness Center is a national award winning, CARF accredited, behavioral health program in a rural setting. We offer individual, family, couples and group psychotherapy to address mental health and substance abuse needs in children, adolescents, adults, and elders. We also provide prevention services, community education, case management, crisis intervention, school-based and detention-based services, and out-of-home placement assistance (i.e, rehab or detox placement, in-patient hospitalization, group home admission). We have an intensive day-treatment psychosocial rehabilitation program for the Seriously Mentally Ill. We also offer a weekly tele-psychiatry clinic.
Whom do you serve?
Our clients are Native American, as the Wellness Center is a tribally-run program under the administrative oversight of the San Carlos Apache Tribe. 97% of the people who utilize services are members of the San Carlos Apache Tribe and 3% are members of other tribes, though we will see people of any ethnicity in crisis situations. The people we serve are culturally and economically diverse, with 50% of the population being under the age of twenty-five years.

A.T. Anderson Memorial Scholarships
The A.T. Anderson Memorial Scholarship program was established by AISES in 1983 in memory of A.T. Anderson (Mohawk), a chemical engineer and an AISES founder. Annual scholarships are awarded to members of AISES who are American Indian/Alaskan Native (AI/AN) college students pursuing academic degrees in the sciences, engineering, medicine, natural resources, and math.
The A.T. Anderson Memorial Scholarship program is a cornerstone of AISES’ scholarship activty. Over 28 years, AISES has awarded $8,723,250 cumulatively in scholarship support to 4,934 AI/AN students. This is a competitive program. This year, 80 students were awarded scholarships from a candidate pool of over 160.
This merit-based scholarship program plays an important role in helping remove financial barriers to higher education among Native undergraduates and graduates majoring in the STEM fields. This is significant in light of U.S. Department of Education 2009 data showing that only only 185,000 AI/AN students were enrolled in higher education (a mere 0.6% of overall student enrollment). This fact, coupled with high drop-off rates from STEM to other areas of study contribute to underrepresentation of AI/ANs in higher education overall and specifically in the STEM fields.
This is a competitive scholarship program with strict eligibility criteria including 3.0 or higher cumulative grade point average (GPA). Eligibility information for all of AISES’ scholarship programs can be found HERE
