Scholarship Opportunity for Native Youth to Attend Tribal Colleges and Universities Summit!

SAMHSA is collaborating with the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) on the Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCU) Summit which will take place at the Holiday Inn Washington-Capital immediately following the AIHEC Winter Meeting (February 8-11, 2016 in Washington, DC).
The purpose of the SAMHSA TCU Summit is to improve the behavioral health of Native youth, TCU students and faculty, employees on TCU campuses, and surrounding tribal communities through increased awareness, education, and training.  The Summit supports the White House Generations Indigenous Initiative to reduce barriers that impact opportunities for Native youth to succeed.
SAMHSA will support the participation of a limited number of Native youth aged 16-24.  In order to participate, Native youth must:
  • be an enrolled member of one of the 566 federally-recognized tribes;
  • be engaged in an effort to improve their communities;
  •  receive endorsement from a tribal leader, and
  • have the consent of their parent(s) or legal guardian(s).

Registrations will not be accepted after the available opportunities are filled.  An effort will be made to ensure the broadest geographic representation possible.  Registrations may be completed by clicking here.

For more information about the TCU Summit, please contact Sharece Tyer at Sharece.Tyer@samhsa.hhs.gov.
