CNAY Scholarship for Summer Programs at Brown

| April 9, 2017

CNAY has partnered with Brown University’s Pre-College Programs to create yet another opportunity for Native high school students to explore the college experience. We’re offering one full tuition, residential scholarship for a Native student to attend one of four summer programs on Brown’s campus in Providence, Rhode Island, this summer. Students may apply to attend Summer@Brown, the Pre-Baccalaureate Program (for college credit!), Brown Leadership Institute, or Brown Environmental Leadership Lab (BELL) Rhode Island. The choice is yours!

All program costs and fees are covered by the scholarship; however, the scholar is responsible for travel to and from the program, weekend meals, and funds for recreational activities. Learn more.

Applicants must be:

  • Currently enrolled in high school grades 9-12 (or rising/recently graduated high school seniors for the Pre-Bacc program);
  • American Indian, Alaska Native, or Native Hawaiian, with proof of enrollment or descendency;
  • At least 15 years old by the start of the program; and
  • Unable to attend these programs without the financial assistance of this scholarship.

The scholarship recipient will attend the pre-college program of their choice, with all program expenses paid. The recipient is still financially responsible for travel to and from the program, as well as the cost of weekend meals, recreational activities, and other discretionary expenses.
