The First Nations Program was created in 2006 for out-of-state, tribally enrolled, freshmen and transfer Native American students. The intent of this program is to promote, encourage and support academic success and to cultivate a thriving Native American community on the University of Colorado Boulder campus. This is accomplished by coming together for activities, events and by interacting with the Native American community. These activities/events will be at the heart of building the community, so it is imperative that you make the commitment to participate if selected for the program.
Awards are based on quality of application including academic qualifications and demonstrated interest in being a positive, supportive and contributing member of the Native American community on campus; and geographic diversity. Eligible students must submit acceptable Proof Of Tribal Affiliation, at the time of application and prior to being offered entry into the First Nations Program. Applicants must be non-residents, undergraduates, and either incoming freshmen or transfer students.
