The SING USA 2023 application deadline is February 28, 2023.
The workshop will be held July 23 – 29, 2023 at Northern Arizona University and Diné College.
Eligibility and Criteria
The 2023 SING USA Workshop is open to tribal and community college students, undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, and faculty. This also includes Indigenous individuals who would like to learn about these topics. We strongly welcome Indigenous community members, elders, and tribal leaders to attend.
- This workshop is open to Indigenous peoples. This includes but is not limited to Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and members of Canadian First Nation or Métis communities. Please note that due to funding and space limitations, we must prioritize supporting Indigenous participants mainly from North America*.
- SING USA does not act as an arbiter for determining Indigeneity. We rely on applicants’ good faith in self-representing connections to their Indigenous communities. Please provide documentation or a statement of your Indigenous ancestry. We ask applicants to provide either:
- Evidence of tribal enrollment or certification of tribal status recognized by a government, or
- Statement outlining the applicant’s Indigenous ancestry.
- 200 word summary of Applicant’s Background. This should include education or experiences that relate to the SING workshop
- 500 word essay on Applicant’s Purpose for attending the workshop
- Curriculum vitae (CV)/Resumé
Applicants should enter their Academic Experience and Statement of Purpose in the below form. Due to word count limits, we suggest writing these statements beforehand in a Word document before pasting into the form. As a last step, upload any files such as tribal enrollment and CV/Resumé. Please note the 2 GB size limit for each.
After completion of the workshop, participants must submit a 2-page evaluation of the SING workshop program. These evaluations provide organizers valuable feedback to modify and improve future workshops.
