UO's Home Flight Scholars Program: Preparing Future Stewards for Sovereign Domestic Nations

Join the University of Oregon for a reception on Wednesday, December 7 at the J. Scott Cellars on 5th Tasting Room, 5:30-7:00 p.m. Jason Younker, Assistant Vice President and Advisor to the President on Sovereignty and Government to Government Relations, will present on the university's new Home Flight Scholars program, which covers full tuition and fees for Oregon residents who are enrolled citizens of the 574 federally recognized tribes. We'll provide hosted wine and beer plus light bites for you to enjoy as we share what UO is doing to prepare future stewards for sovereign domestic nations.

Three major factors affect American Indian/Alaska Native (AIAN) students: financial hardships, academic difficulties, and the lack of cultural connectedness. The Home Flight Scholars Program addresses these issues, incorporating wrap-around services that support student retention and graduation through complementary financial assistance, improved counseling and academic services, and professional development. Join us on December 7 to learn more.

This reception is part of our Oregon Effect Series, an outreach initiative letting folks around the state know what University of Oregon is doing to improve the lives of everyday Oregonians by bringing UO experts into the community for small-group discussions.
