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*.

    1. Evidence of tribal enrollment or certification of tribal status recognized by a government, or
