A summer Internship opportunity, funded by the Indian Land Tenure Foundation (ILTF) and implemented by Native Educational Endeavors, has recently been announced for Native American college students who are enrolled in a South Dakota institution of higher learning.

Dr. John Glover, Black Hills State University Center for American Indian Studies director, recently announced this opportunity and he encourages BHSU students and students from the region to apply.

The program will allow three promising American Indian students to pursue a specific interest related to land tenure issues. The interns will work with a Tribal Land Office or with a program that manages Indian lands. Preference will be given to American Indian students who have taken Indian land tenure course work or related American Indian Studies courses. Each student can earn up to $4,800 and will receive three upper level college credits (tuition paid). 

The deadline to apply is March 5, 2008. For application information, contact Glover at JohnGlover@BHSU.edu or Urla Marcus, BHSU Center for American Indian Studies assistant director, at UrlaMarcus@BHSU.edu or call (605) 642-6578.
