High school equivalency (HSE) students have unique stories and big dreams. Darlene Chee (Navajo) shares the impact a tribal college education has made on her life: “A tribal college education is particularly important because of the small class size, caring instructors, one-on-one tutoring, and affordability. SIPI’s instructors like Mr. Snyder, and all the HSE staff, are very compassionate and supportive no matter the situation; they help you succeed.”

Check out our new voter blog post here at https://collegefund.org/blog/why-vote/

Jasmine Neosh (Menominee), University of Michigan law student, College of Menominee Nation alumna, and American Indian College Fund student ambassador says, “I vote so that the people who make the change that our communities need have the best possible partners in that fight. While real change often comes through the work of organizers and boots on the ground, the people that we elect can either be our allies or our opposition. Either way, having some say in that choice seems like our responsibility as future ancestors."
