Coalition for American Indians in Computing Summer High School Student Scholarship

Program for Native American high school students in grades 11 and 12 who are interested in computing.

The Coalition for American Indians in Computing offers a 2-week computer summer camp at Humboldt State University in Arcata, California, this July. All expenses are paid for the participants. We are a coalition of Humboldt State's Computing Science Department and Local Native Tribes, and funded through a grant from the National Science Foundation. We also have on-going scholarships up to $1000 per semester for Native American Computer Information Science majors and minors enrolled at Humboldt State University (Northern California).

A .pdf flyer and applications can be found here.

More information can be found on the Coalition for American Indians in Computing website here.


The Coalition is a cooperation among American Indian Tribal Communities and the Computing Science Department of Humboldt State University (Northern California), with funding support from the National Science Foundation. Its goal is to increase the numbers of American Indian students who are prepared to undertake careers in fields related to Information Technology. Parents, teachers, advisors, students, Tribal Information technology workers, Tribal education directors, Tribal leadership, HSU faculty and HSU staff participate collaboratively in attempting to realize this goal. Any self-identified Native American or Alaskan Native high school Junior or Senior is eligible to apply for participation in CAIC Summer Program. The CAIC Scholars Program is for College Students.
