College of the Environment Yakama Nation Endowed Fund for Student Support
The Yakama Nation Endowed Fund for Student Support was created to support the recruitment and retention of prospective and enrolled undergraduate and graduate Yakama Nation tribal members within the College of the Environment, and to deepen the connection between UW and the Yakama Nation via informal and formal gatherings, exchanges and co-learning.
There are 2 types of funding available:
– Support of recruitment, retention and co-learning activities: College staff, students and faculty and Yakama Nation tribal members may apply for up to $1500 to support activities that either support the recruitment and retention of prospective and enrolled undergraduate and graduate Yakama Nation tribal members within the College, and/or deepen the connection between the Yakama Nation and UW. Applications are accepted quarterly. The Autumn Quarter deadline is October 30, 2015.
– Direct support of CoEnv student tribal members: the fund provides awards of up to $3,000 to be used for any reasonable expense that supports the student’s progress in the College. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
