What the Program is
Our Lands, Education, and Health is a collaboration that began between the Tohono O’odham One Stop program and SWEHSC to offer students the opportunity to explore environmental health careers through an Indigenous lens and gain a sense of belonging on the University of Arizona campus.
The Models Used
The model used has been adapted from the KEYS model and the Indigenous Research Framework to give students a culturally relevant experience.
The first week on campus students will be introduced to campus life and STEM careers in environmental health. During the second week on campus students will be introduced to grant proposal writing and will develop a hypothetical project that they want to conduct in their community.
Who is Eligible to Apply?
Tohono O’odham, Pascua Yaqui, and Gila River Indian Community youth who are engaged in the tribe’s One Stop program and are interested in careers related to environmental health.
