Eligibility and Criteria

The SING Workshop is open to tribal and community college students, undergraduate and graduate students, and post-docs. This includes Indigenous individuals who would like to learn about these topics. We welcome tribal community members and tribal leaders to attend.

  • This workshop is open to Indigenous peoples. This includes Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and members of Canadian First Nation or Métis communities. Please note that funding limitations allow for participants mainly from North America. Documentation should be provided by either:
    1. Evidence of tribal enrollment or certification of tribal status recognized by a government, or
    2. 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 Background and 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.

The application form will be available again for SING USA 2021 starting in November of 2020.
