Annual College Guide for American Indians, 1994-1995.
Winds of Change, spec iss 1994
This guide provides college information especially tailored for American Indian and Alaska Native students, their families, and their guidance counselors. The heart of the guide is a unique compilation of 200 colleges and universities selected because they have a supportive American Indian community and graduate a good percentage of their American Indian undergraduates. In a double-page format, the left page provides the usual descriptive data (size, location, affiliations, costs, and student and faculty statistics), while the right page contains information on the American Indian community (number of total Indian students, Indian undergraduates, baccalaureate degrees, graduate students, and faculty, as well as Indian percentages) and on financial, academic, and support programs specifically for American Indians. The guide also includes articles that profile Native American college students and their educational experiences, describe eight colleges with exceptional programs for Indian students, highlight opportunities at tribal colleges in the United States and Canada, explain the basics of paying for college, give practical information and advice on writing a college application essay, interview 10 outstanding school guidance counselors, and list summer programs for American Indians. This publication contains photographs and many paid advertisements describing opportunities for American Indians in colleges, universities, and corporations. (SV)
