Funding is now available through the Yakama Nation Endowed Fund for Student Support. There are two types of funding:
– Support of recruitment, retention and co-learning activities: Quarterly, CoEnv staff, students and faculty and Yakama Nation tribal members may apply for funding 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. The deadline to apply this summer is 7/15/2015.
– 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.

Please help get the word out to your students, faculty and staff – we want to start awarding funds this summer!
