Education Northwest has had the honor of working with many Native educators, students, families, and community members throughout our 51-year history. These partnerships reflect a core value of our organization—the desire to address inequities within our education system and to ensure that all children and youth have the opportunity to reach their full potential. We believe that healthy Native communities are essential to the health and well-being of our region, and we remain committed to this effort.
The Steven R. Nelson Native Educator Scholarship Program is part of this commitment. This scholarship program strives to increase Native representation in the field of education by providing financial support, mentoring, and internships for Native students in the Northwest who are pursuing a master’s degree in education policy, leadership, technical assistance, research, or a closely related field. We view this program as an opportunity to create long-term partnerships that will improve our ability to meet the needs of Native communities.
Our former colleague, Steve Nelson, dedicated his career to working with tribes, communities, and schools to improve American Indian students’ success in academics and in life. This program honors his work by providing selected students with as many as three years of annually renewable scholarships. Awardees will receive a maximum of $5,000 each year, and we will award as many as five scholarships per year—one for a resident of each state in our primary service region of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.
