American Political Leadership Program (NAPLP)
George Washington University
in Washington, DC. The INSPIRE Pre-College Program is a fully-funded opportunity open to
American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian upcoming junior and
senior high school students, including 2014 anticipated graduates. This
program is for students who want to spend 3-weeks on the George Washington University (GW) campus to take one undergraduate course, learn
about intergovernmental relations between tribal governments and the federal
government, and meet influential Native advocates.
The INSPIRE Summer Program scholarship covers the cost of room and board, airfare, all required
textbooks, local travel, and one undergraduate course in “Native
Politics and the American Political System.”
