Request for contributions to the:
Alaska Native Education Resource Guide

We need your help!

On behalf of First Alaskans Institute, McDowell Group, an Alaska research and consulting firm, has been asked to compile a web-based directory of people/programs/organizations that are involved in Alaska Native education.  We know that each region in Alaska has people and programs geared toward Alaska Natives, and we want to include this information in our directory.  We are interested in capturing a wide array of programs, including curriculum development, language programs, teacher training and development programs, cultural programs, scholarships/financial support, and more.

Specifically, we are requesting:

Name of Program
Contact Name/Title
Web-site (if available)
Short description of the program

We need your information by October 31, so that it can be built into the web design in time to be unveiled at the 2nd Annual Alaska Native Education Summit to be held Monday and Tuesday, December 9 and 10, at the Egan Center in Anchorage. 

First Alaskans Institute (FAI) pursues its mission by focusing on initiatives in the areas of education, leadership development, and policy development. FAI sees to advance education for Alaska Natives by strengthening educational achievement at all levels, funding targeted programs to effect systemic change, and providing scholarships and special funding for higher education and occupational training.
