Golda Cook Scholarships to be presented at National UNITY Conference

Woodland Hills, CA— One-Thousand dollar scholarships will be awarded to one young woman and one young man at the celebration banquet on July 15, at the 2013 National UNITY Conference in Woodland Hills, California.

The scholarships, presented annually, are in memory of Golda Cook who provided key financial support to UNITY in its lean, early years. Golda enjoyed attending many UNITY Conferences and events during her life. Scholarship funds have been made possible by her family, friends, and UNITY trustees.

A Selection Committee will review applications and look for need, involvement in one’s community, achievements, and plans for contributing to Native America. Guidelines and applications can be obtained via the UNITY website: http://www.unityinc.org or by phoning the UNITY office: (405) 236-2800.

As many as 1200 Native American Youth Leaders from throughout the U.S. are expected to attend the UNITY conference in Woodland Hills just outside of LA. For over 30 years the National UNITY Conference has brought Native Youth Leaders to cities all across the United States to participate in a drug and alcohol free setting. The youth led five day conference will have a packed agenda including motivational messages, team-building exercises, health and fitness activities, cultural exchange, workshops, banquet, and closing commitment ceremony.
