Education Insights

What’s New and What
Does it Mean?

A three-part virtual series hosted by President Cheryl Crazy Bull

Hosted by American Indian College Fund President & CEO Cheryl Crazy Bull, Native Higher Education Insights is a 3-part webinar series that gives you the inside scoop on the status of Native higher education. In this post-COVID crisis era, many things have changed in the education environment – and we want to share with you a little more about how both tribal colleges and universities AND our scholars are faring.

Cheryl gives a broad overview of the changing landscape in Native higher education and how the TCUs and the College Fund are responding to and managing those changes.

Session 2: Recorded May 9th, 2024

Cheryl discusses how the delayed release of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the SCOTUS affirmative action ruling can have long-term impacts on Native students access to higher education.

Session 3: Recorded June 13th, 2024

Cheryl examines the post-COVID world and the financial feasibility for Native students in their pursuit of higher education now that the influx of funding from the past few years is gone, and the direction the College Fund is going in to continue supporting Native students and communities with a similar, and potentially stronger, impact.
