Preserving Natural Resources
Strengthening environmental science opportunities for students.
The College Fund invests in the TCUs that are engaged in strengthening their environmental science opportunities for students. It provides support for TCUs that are working with Native communities to develop and implement research initiatives and innovative collaborations. The goal is to help students learn to preserve natural resources, address environmental and climate issues, and strategically steward their resources to align with cultural and tribal connections to land, water, animals, and air.

Infrastructure involves design, implementation, and sustainability of systems and structures. We support tribal colleges and universities expanding their education offerings for students in this area, with opportunities to create well-designed learning spaces with the appropriate equipment, and to sustain or expand infrastructure.
