Application instructions

Application Instructions:

Ecotrust's mission is to inspire fresh thinking that creates economic opportunity, social equity and environmental well-being. Ecotrust established its Indigenous Affairs Program to promote, recognize, and support a growing network of Native leaders; increase outdoor education opportunities for native youth in culture, natural resource stewardship, and land management; and restore native lands and their resources for future generations. As part of this initiative, the contemporary education of the next generation of Native Leaders is critical. Their ability to preserve and protect their native and natural legacy will be strengthened and empowered by contemporary education. In 2006, Ecotrust received specific grant funds from an anonymous donor for the purpose of supporting access to undergraduate and graduate college education by American Indians/Alaskan Native/First Nations students. The goal of the funding is to support the educational needs and promote the next generation of Native leaders in the Ecotrust bioregion.
