NAFSI Scholarship Program

At First Nations Development Institute (First Nations), we believe that reclaiming control over local food systems is an important step toward ensuring the long-lasting health and economic well-being of Native people and communities.  Native food-system control has the potential to increase food production, improve health and nutrition, and eliminate food insecurity in rural and reservation-based communities, while also promoting entrepreneurship and economic development.

The purpose of the Native Agriculture and Food Systems Scholarship Program is to encourage more Native American college students to enter these fields so that they can better assist their communities with these efforts. First Nations will award five $1,000 scholarships for the 2017-2018 academic school year to Native American college students majoring in agriculture and agriculture-related fields, including but not limited to agribusiness management, agriscience technologies, agronomy, animal husbandry, aquaponics, environmental studies, fisheries and wildlife, food production and safety, food-related policy and legislation, food science and technology, horticulture, irrigation science, nutrition education, and sustainable agriculture or food systems.

A free workshop on establishing a Master Apprentice total immersion program, led by Center for Tribal Languages Director Jacob Manatowa-Bailey, will be offered during the Oklahoma Native American Young Adult Language Fair. The time of the workshop will be announced during the opening ceremony.

The project/performance categories are:

  • Individual, Small, and Large Group Spoken Language
  • Individual, Small, and Large Group Traditional Song in Language
  • Individual, Small, and Large Group Modern Song in Language
  • Native Language Advocacy Essay-Written and Performed in Language (with or without translation)

  • Energy needs

  • Land elevation

Using this information, you will determine the location, number and type of wind turbines to be emplaced.

Junior Fellows Summer Intern Program Mission

The Library of Congress Junior Fellows Summer Intern Program (10 weeks) offers undergraduate and graduate students insights into the environment, culture and collections of the world's largest and most comprehensive repository of human knowledge. Through the Junior Fellows Program, the Library of Congress furthers its mission to provide access to a universal record of knowledge, culture and creativity as exemplified by its collections, while supporting current and future generations of students and scholars. The fellows explore digital initiatives and inventory, catalog, arrange, preserve and research a backlog of special, legal or copyright collections in many different formats.
