 The sponsor seeks to fund a College Internship Program open to

addressing all four of ILTF?s strategies with activities designed to

give a college student, a tribe and an educational institution the

opportunity to address identified land-related issues. 

 Education Strategy: Educate every Indian landowner about Indian

land tenure issues so that knowledge becomes power when decisions to

create positive futures are made. 

 Economic Strategy: Increase economic assets of Indian landowners by

gaining control of Indian land and creating financial models that

convert land into leverage. 

 Legal Reform Strategy: Reform legal mechanisms governing

sovereignty of Indian land to recapture physical, cultural, and

economic assets of Indian people. 

 Cultural Strategy: Use Indian land to help Indian people discover

their culture. 


 Eligible applicants are tribal colleges and mainstream colleges or

universities with Indian study programs. 


 The sponsor will target up to fifteen tribal colleges or

universities and five mainstream college or university Indian Studies

programs for funding of one intern per semester allowing up to $8,000

per internship (including stipend, college credit scholarship, travel,


stipulations, or housing); minimum of three semesters and no more than

nine credits total; with a maximum of $24,000 per educational

institution for three semesters.  (bjv)
