native_american_scholars_program.jpgThe Native American Scholars and Collaborators Project

The Native Scholars and Collaborators Project is designed to help reduce the profound gap in the numbers of school counselors and school psychologists appropriately trained to serve Native American youth and communities.  The project provides a cross-level cohort model, Native American mentors, models, readings, ongoing specialty seminar, and supervised specialized field placements.  It emphasizes strength and resilience-based interventions that affirm the culture of the child and recognize the influences of historical trauma and colonization.  Financial incentives offset the costs of tuition, and help support scholars with supplies, professional development, mileage to rural placements, and involvement in Native American educational activities and professional programs.  Two rural partner school districts provide access to work with Native American students, parent groups, and tribal communities.
