Fifteen Navajo Preparatory School Students Awarded $15,000 in Scholarship

A nonprofit working to promote health and wellness in Indian Country has awarded $15,000 in scholarships to 15 Navajo students attending Navajo Preparatory School in Farmington, New Mexico.

The scholarships come from Eve's Fund for Native American Health Initiatives, a 501(c)3 that sponsors community programs in injury prevention, literacy and education for at-risk Native youth.

Seven of the students are receiving the scholarship for the first time, and eight students are continuing from previous years. According to a statement by Eve's Fund, students were selected based on demonstrated financial need, scholastic potential, and leadership skills. Each recipient's award fully covers the school's required academic and residential fees.
