Through a partnership with the US Department of Education’s Office of Indian Education, Claremont Graduate University will award selected Native Americans with a generous support package to help them earn a California preliminary K-12 teaching credential and master’s in education in as little as 15 months.

The fellowship provides selected Native American students with full tuition support and a stipend for living expenses, in addition to a year of mentoring once they complete the program, so that they emerge as teachers prepared with the skills needed to promote educational excellence in their communities.

  • A 100% tuition fellowship to complete Claremont Graduate University’s preliminary teaching credential and master’s in education program. (Fellows will be responsible for nominal student fees and costs associated with state-mandated tests for K-12 teachers.)
  • Fifteen months of living expenses ($1,400/month).
  • One year of post-program job mentorship. (Fellows need not be in California for this phase of the program.)

In exchange for the 15 months of tuition and living support, CNA Fellows must be employed for at least 15 months in a school serving Native American students. This school does not need to be located in California. If the CNA Fellow fails to meet this service commitment, the total amount of funds given becomes a loan that must be repaid. Therefore, it is imperative that CNA Fellows are committed to the teaching profession.


Six Native Americans will be selected as CNA Fellows for Cohort 1; an additional six CNA Fellows will be selected for Cohort 2.

The goal of the legislative fellowship is for young Native leaders to become familiar with the legislative process, to understand their own histories and how their cultures inform their own leadership, and to learn how emerging policy issues impact Alaska Native peoples, communities and the State of Alaska. Participants will gain meaningful work experience while also supporting the flow of information between the our State Capital and Alaska Native communities.
