As part of the Generation Indigenous (Gen-I) movement, the Center for Native American Youth (CNAY) and NAFOA have partnered to create the Gen-I Career Success Fellowship program.

The fellowship program is designed to help students discover and articulate their career interests and prepare them for success in their chosen career.

The Gen-I Career Success Fellowship Program provides funding to qualified and highly motivated Native American youth to attend the NAFOA Leadership Summit and NAFOA Annual Conference in New Orleans, LA from April 22, 2018 – April 24, 2018.

Fellowship applications open today, Jan. 10th, 2018 and consists of short essay questions, resume submission, and a listing of relevant coursework.

Both modules can be completed in an average of 7-10 hours.
