Step into this expansive guide, a pathway strewn with education and career wisdom, from choosing a school that feels like home to landing an internship to kick-start your career dreams. It’s a goldmine of scholarship opportunities in diverse fields. TCF’s Education Resource Handbook’s spirit is rooted in the Alaska Native student experience, but you don’t need a CIRI affiliation to reap its rewards. So, are you ready to unlock a world of possibilities? Let’s walk this path together, strengthening our community and shaping our future.
Project Grant Funding Opportunities
Start with the goals of each program, and consider whether your project will impact the beneficiaries of The CIRI Foundation (CIRI original enrollees and their direct lineal descendants) or Alaska Native people more generally.
Your organization may be eligible to apply for more than one grant program.
The Alaska State Council on the Arts, in partnership with The CIRI Foundation, is pleased to provide the Alaska Native Artist Resource Workbook to assist Alaska Native artists in furthering their artistic careers.
Please call ASCA at 907-269-6610 for assistance with grants and programs.
The purpose of this Grant Writing Handbook is to offer suggestions and clarify the process of writing a grant proposal for arts funding. It is adapted from the First Peoples’ Cultural Council of British Columbia to provide information and resources specific to Alaskan artists. We are grateful for this partnership enabling us to increase our resources to perpetuate and promote the unique artistic and cultural traditions of Alaska Native peoples!
