Howka sisters and brothers, I have been sent another educational opportunity for our people. I cannot express enough how important it is for our people to take advantage of these great educational opportunties.. We can never have enough Natives getting their educational degrees.

A 4-week pre-dental summer enrichment program is again being offered at Creighton University School of Dentistry for six American Indian students from June 20 – July 15, 2011. The program allows students to explore a career in dentistry in a dental school environment. The program includes daily hands-on projects, dental assisting, mentoring by senior dental students and mock dental school interviews.

Tuition, transportation, lodging, a weekly meal allowance and a $1,000 stipend is provided to each student through a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Creighton University. Program information, calendar and application are attached. Please forward this information to students who are interested. For questions, call 402-280-5008.

Thank you,
