Native Student Opportunities, 8.23.13

Back to School
Back to Applying


Welcome back!

We've returned to that time of the year where we pull out the laptops and textbooks and get back to work. Which also means that opportunities are coming up faster than you think. Even though we haven't reached September yet, now is the time to starting thinking about summer internships and other ways to advance your studies or your career. Check back often for updates to this list of Native student opportunities. We'll try and update every two weeks.

Here is a list of jobs, internships, scholarships, and professional development opportunities for Native students.

And remember, these are for everyone, so please share!
