Education for and about Indigenous Peoples

The first part of our mission is to provide education for indigenous peoples. We fulfill this mission primarily through our programs of indigenous peoples educational scholarships and indigenous institutional education grants.

Organizations working for the education of indigenous peoples should download and complete our institutional education grant application form to apply. (you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader available for free from Adobe's website) The application form includes instructions. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding eligibility or the application procedure.

Recent Recipients

In 2016 we donated a total of US$ 300 to Centro Ecológico Maleku Araraf and Asociación de Guías Turísticos Indígenas Bribri de Talamanca. These grants helped the Maleku and Bribri indigenous peoples of Costa Rica to promote ecotourism-based educational programs that provide additional, sustainable income to their communities.
