Indian scholarship opportunity


For any and all tribal members who currently hold the bachelor's degree, I would like to invite you to consider continuing your academic career at Central Washington University, by applying to the master's degree program in Resource Management. There are still several openings available this coming fall for qualified students to participate in the Native American Graduate Fellowship Program. We are able to offer you full tuition and a
monthly stipend for living expenses under a grant from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. No matter what you have majored in as an undergraduate, the graduate Resource Management curriculum will offer you a chance to get
involved with learning the important concepts and skills in managing Indian lands and natural resources as well as dealing with archaeological issues, sacred sites, and other cultural resources.

For more information on these fellowships and how to apply, see:

Dartmouth's Native American Fly-In Program


Dartmouth's annual Native American Fly-In program provides talented Native American high school seniors with an unparalleled opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge of the College's academic resources, student services, and admission and financial aid criteria. Program participants enjoy extensive interaction with members of the Dartmouth Native American community along with a cross section of College students, faculty, and staff through a mix of information sessions, academic presentations, and social events. Complimentary meals and on-campus housing are included for Fly-In guests with round trip transportation assistance.

If you are interested in being a Native American Fly-In participant, some of the basic criteria include:

  • Membership in a Native American, Alaska Native or Native Hawaiian tribe, nation or community.
  • A strong high school transcript.
  • High school senior status in the 2002-2003 school year.
  • A sincere interest in applying to Dartmouth College.

In order to apply for Dartmouth College’s Native American Fly-In Program, please complete and send the following items:

  • A completed application form. You can download the application form in PDF format from the site.
  • An up-to-date high school transcript. Transcripts can be faxed to the Dartmouth Admissions Office at 603-646-1216.
  • A well-developed essay of one to two pages, on the topic provided at the end of the application form. Whenever possible, please type your essay.

Each of the above documents must all be sent to the following address:

Native American Fly In Program

Dartmouth College Admissions Office

Hanover, NH 03755

The application submission deadline is Friday, July 1, 2002. Candidates selected for participation will be notified by August 30. As demand for this program often exceeds our capacity to accommodate student interest, we ask especially that those who are not selected do not consider our decision as an indicator of their undergraduate admission prospects at Dartmouth College. The College offers a similar program in the spring for all Native American students who have been admitted to the college and who have not previously visited the campus.

Please take advantage of this potential opportunity to see what Dartmouth has to offer you. If you have further questions, please call us at 1-800-860-1294, Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST.
