A new and fast-growing Native American cultural group in the city will offer scholarships to high school seniors in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, beginning this year thanks to a $15,000 scholarship fund established by CVS Pharmacy.
In this first year, the Connecticut Native American Inter Tribal Council will award three to six scholarships of between $2,500-$5,000 to a student of Native American descent who is going into health sciences, said James E. Rawlings, founder and chairman of the council.
The amount of each scholarship will depend on the specific school program and student need.
Rawlings said it’s great that CVS is supportive of Native Americans and recognizes as a corporation the importance of jobs within the health science field, a fast growing industry even in this poor economy.
“This is a great match for Native Americans,” Rawlings said. He said the scholarship winners would likely be announced in June.
