The Tribal College Journal (TCJ) in Mancos, CO, is offering free subscriptions to a limited number of American Indian high school students and counselors in the Four Corners.
A quarterly magazine, Tribal College Journal has been published since 1989 by the American Indian Higher Education Consortium. TCJ provides information on how American Indian higher education is changing the face of Indian Country. It includes profiles of students and alumni who have conquered various obstacles to find success.
Of special interest to high school students and placement counselors, the magazine also provides information on scholarships, internships, and employment opportunities.
TCJ has won nationwide recognition, including a nomination by the Western Publications Association for general excellence and two Native American Journalists Association honorable mention awards. There are 37 tribally controlled colleges and universities in the consortium, and their presidents serve as the advisory board for the journal.
TCJ received $1490 for the subscriptions from the Southern Ute Indian Tribe and Sky Ute Casino. After submitting a grant application to the casino, the magazine staff was selected to participate in the 18th annual non-profit money booth in Ignacio.
TCJ, along with representatives from other regional non-profit organizations, went to the casino May 18 where they took turns grabbing flying money in a booth. Each organization received $500 plus the money they were able to get in 45 seconds.
American Indian high school students and counselors who want free subscriptions can call Marvene Tom at the Tribal College Journal, (970) 533-9170 or email email@example.com. The subscriptions will be given free to the first eligible students and counselors who respond.
