LEAD Summer Business Institute
for Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian
High School Juniors
University of Pennsylvania
The LEAD Summer Business Institute is a dynamic summer program open to Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian high school students in their junior year (during the 2012-2013 academic year). Students spend 3-4 weeks on a college campus learning about careers in business and finance. Students take finance, business, accounting, and marketing classes with world-renowned professors and converse with executives during corporate site visits at companies such as Google and Apple. Tribal leaders and Native American professionals share with students exciting business developments and help them understand how a financial career can benefit tribal communities. Students also participate in field trips to amusement parks and sporting events.
Tuition and Scholarships: The cost of the program is $1,250 plus round trip airfare. Significant full and partial scholarships are available through NAFOA. Last year, 98% of students received financial aid.
Please forward widely to tribal education departments, high schools, non-profits, community centers, parents, and students.
