A Crazy Horse Memorial summer education program aimed at Native American high school graduates is giving participants a jump start on their college careers.
Crazy Horse CEO Ruth Ziolkowski says 68 percent of the students who have attended the Indian University of North America have continued to pursue degrees at private public or tribal colleges and universities. She says the retention rate for Native American college students is typically less than 20 percent.
Participants take courses in algebra, English and Native American Studies and are eligible to earn up to 12 college credits toward their degree. Students receive a scholarship for tuition, books and supplies and a portion of food and lodging costs.
The Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation runs the school in partnership with the University of South Dakota.
