LUCE Indigenous Knowledge Fellowship

Fellowship Overview
First Nations will award 10 fellowships of $50,000 each to 10 outstanding Native knowledge holders and knowledge makers engaged in meaningful work that benefits Indigenous people and communities in either reservation and/or urban settings. These fellowships support the work of Native knowledge holders and knowledge makers as they significantly advance their work and spark transformative change in their communities. In this sense, community is broadly defined and can include Native communities and knowledge communities.

The fellowship is a 12-month, self-directed enrichment program designed to support the growth, development, knowledge and networks of Native leaders. This unique and exciting fellowship supports individuals from diverse fields and engaged in different modes of expression. The fellowship is open to both emerging and experienced leaders from a wide variety of fields, including but not limited to, agriculture, food systems, youth leadership development, natural resource management, climate change, economic development, journalism, language and cultural revitalization, traditional and contemporary arts and more.

During the fellowship period, fellows will gather together three times during the year to pool their collective knowledge, and create a community of practice that crosses fields, geographies and tribal cultures. These three required convenings will give fellows the opportunity to engage in rich conversations intended to strengthen their leadership skills, reflect on their impact, share their learning and experiences and promote enduring professional relationships. These cohorts will empower fellows to overcome any geographic and cultural isolation they may experience by being a Native knowledge holder or knowledge maker, possibly as the only one in their field.

Important Note: Pending community and travel restrictions, these convenings may be redesigned to accommodate a virtual setting for the safety and health of all participants.

Oneida Higher Education Scholarship Update:

In April 2020, The Oneida Higher Education Scholarship was reduced to a maximum of $5000 per academic school year
(August – July).

The $5000 maximum applies to all education levels: Vocational, Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral

The $5000 cannot be applied in full to any single term. It will be divided based on each school’s required terms.

For example:
Two required terms – Fall and Spring (award will be a max of $2500 per term)

Three required terms- Fall, Winter, Spring or Fall, Spring, Summer (award will be a max of 1667 per term)

Four required terms - Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer (award will be max of $1250 per term)

Monthly (Cosmetology programs) (award will be max of $416 per month)

One term’s award can not be carried over to another term.

For example, if a student does not attend fall term, they cannot get the entire $5000 for spring term. Being at a two-term school, a student would only get a max of $2500 for spring term, no matter what.

Special note:
We encourage all individuals who are applying for the Covid 19 Education Relief Fund program to also apply for the Oneida Higher Education Scholarship for Fall term 20/21 if eligible.

Spring term funding from Higher Education will be available at the above listed amounts for eligible students.

Please contact the Oneida Higher Education Department at
(920) 869-4033 with any Higher Ed questions.

Please contact (920)-869-4032 with any questions relating to the Covid 19 Education Relief Fund program.

Wisconsin Sea Grant Summer Internship Program

The Wisconsin Sea Grant Summer Internship Program is a paid 10-week experience that places college undergraduate students with outreach or communications specialists on issues affecting coastal and water resources in Wisconsin. It provides a diversity of students with hands-on experience under the mentorship of a career professional. Interns will assist mentors with field work, analyses, research and/or outreach and public engagement efforts. The goal of the Wisconsin Sea Grant Summer Internship Program is to contribute to a diverse workforce that understands technical and social challenges facing coastal communities and the natural environment. The program helps prepare undergraduate students for graduate school, as well as careers in aquatic sciences and outreach.

AWARD & ELIGIBILITY
Selected students will be awarded a $5,000 stipend. Need-based assistance grants may be available to help offset travel and living expenses.
