“The Education is Ceremony Scholarship assisted me in my education this past spring 2020 term at the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health by giving me the opportunity to wrap up my graduate studies and successfully completing my field experience with tribal elder advisors, tribal project partners, and indigenous scholars…. Thank you to the NHI family for the wonderful opportunity that allowed me to begin the foundation of this project that will be available for tribal communities in the future.”
