Tribal Scholarship and Mentorship Program

It is critical that Tribal members are engaged in discussions about the future of this competitive and complex industry. As a Native-owned business, we want to ensure there are opportunities for future leaders to have a seat at the table.

Raving offers the opportunity for up to five eligible tribal members to participate at no cost Indian country’s longest-running conference, Raving NEXT. Download our Information Sheet. To apply for a scholarship, which covers your full access pass, please complete the application form by December 15, 2023. Apply Today!

"Participating in the conference was an enriching experience that surpassed all my expectations. I am very grateful for the chance to connect and learn from leaders and mentors within the industry. This experience truly ignited my passion to want to continue to growth within the gaming industry."

– Cheyenne Datan, Ainsworth Game Technology | 2024 Tribal Scholarship Recipient


Recognizing organizations that give back

Six years ago, Raving began an industry movement, to recognize those Tribal organizations that give back to their communities. We ask you to share those special events, those acts of generosity, those good works outside of your job description that have improved lives in your community. Because the more we hear about people helping people, the energy spreads. It's not bragging … it’s educating the world about the positive impact of Tribal gaming.
