Happy New Year!
The first Native Opportunities Weekly (NOW) message for
2014 shares information about an exciting new initiative – INSPIRE
Pre-College Summer Program!
The INSPIRE Initiative is spearheaded by the
Native American Political Leadership Program (NAPLP) at The George Washington
University in Washington, DC. The
INSPIRE Pre-College Program is a fully-funded opportunity open to Native
American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian rising junior and high school
students who want to spend 3-weeks on the George Washington
University campus to learn about intergovernmental relations between tribal
governments and the federal government. The program will include
opportunities for students to meet influential Native advocates and
participate in a full-day experiential undergraduate course focused on Native
Politics and the American Political System.
The INSPIRE initiative scholarship covers the cost of room and board,
airfare, all required textbooks, local travel, and one course in “Native
Politics and the American Political System.”

you are interested in the program;

Enrollment or Ancestry; and
