Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Four hundred fifteen full- and part-time students and vocational-technical students are receiving scholarships from Sealaska for the 2021-2022 school year.
Sealaska is partnering with Sealaska Heritage Institute to invest in educational programs that benefit Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian people.
Together, they directed more than $1 million to students in the 2021-2022 school year. “Individual awards have continued to grow since 2016,” said SHI President Rosita Worl in a release. “Scholarship amounts have more than doubled in the last five years despite an increase in recipients.”
