Send American Indian Student Researchers to Portland
Who is the American Indian Graduate Student Association?
Our purpose and mission is to serve a critical role in promoting the professional development and cultural knowledge of its graduate and advanced degree-seeking undergraduate members in a collaborative, social environment. By fostering an atmosphere that promotes intellectual engagement and academic support, we hope to cultivate future leaders with a collective, altruistic vision aimed at raising awareness at Arizona State University and surrounding community on indigenous concerns in higher education.
How has the American Indian Graduate Student Association impacted Arizona State University?
AIGSA has financially supported:
- Registration fees for Graduate students to attend conferences
- Application fees for undergraduates who are applying to a Graduate program
- Research projects
- Printing posters for Graduate students research projects
Events AIGSA has hosted:
- Research symposiums for Graduate students to showcase their current research projects
- Mentor undergrads who strive to attend Grad School
- For the past two years we have partnered with AIS 494: Cultural Professionalism class to mentor the students. Each student is partnered up with an American Indian graduate student who will provide guidance on their semester’s research project.
I am so happy to announce we have raised $1,207 for funding to be used to send AIGSA members to Portland! We have 17 more days left to raise funds. We are a small team of six but between the six of us we have generated 13 wonderful supporters of our campaign. I believe that we can gain more supporters in the next 17 days! If you haven't already, please donate and/or share our campaign page. We value all donations, whether they be $5.00 or $100.00. It's all used towards the same common goal.
As our second week of fundraising is nearing the third week, I am truly humbled by our supporter's generosity and am thankful our supporter's believe in our campaign mission and purpose. We have until February 15th to raise conference funds and I believe that we can reach our $7,000 goal.
Again THANK YOU for donating and sharing our campaign.
This is the second week of our fundraising initiative. Last week we raised $245 and we are all incredibly thankful for our supporter's generosity. Looking at our goal of $7,000 we still have quite a ways to go. Please help us in either donating or circulating our campaign with your friends and family. Thank you.
