Preparing for College

Tribal Colleges, Native Studies Programs and Indian Education:


UCLA Certificate Program: Working in Contemporary Native Nations

Interested in learning more about issues facing Native America today? Federal Indian Law and Policy? Or Protecting Cultural Property?

Spring Quarter for online UCLA extension classes are starting soon (March 30th). The sign up process is very easy AND there is a easy scholarship to sign up for too so don’t let those dollar signs intimidate you. I cannot recommend these classes enough.You can take 1 class at a time or two at once. There are small weekly assignments that are usually class discussions, three short papers, and a final paper.

They do require a lot of reading and writing but you will get so much out of it. You get to virtually meet different Native people from all walks of life from around the US and sometimes other countries. In each class, you get up-to-date on current pressing issues facing Indian Country, how to think critically about them, and be informed!



Need a Summer Internship/Job?

If you’re not doing Pipeline this year, its not too early to start looking for a summer job or internship!

The Department of Labor has this cool Beta site where you can look for jobs and internships.

The best part?: most of the internships are PAID! YES!!

Anyways, take a look and maybe you’ll find something. Due dates for certain programs are coming up so keep that in mind.

Good luck!
