Purpose

This program provides fellowships for Native individuals who propose innovative solutions to address barriers and issues that are experienced by indigenous communities. The primary question fellows are asked to solve is, "How can Native innovators in the U.S. use traditional knowledge and technology to drive social, environmental, and economic impact in their communities?"

The fellowship may be awarded to Native-led solutions that:

  • Increase access to jobs, financial capital, and skill development opportunities
  • Support language and cultural revitalization, quality K-12 education, and support for first-generation college students
  • Provide healthy and sovereign food, sustainable energy, and safe water
  • Improve healthcare access and outcomes, including around mental health and substance use disorders
