Scholarships Available to Study on the Mohawk Reserve

Dr. Arwin Smallwood, a history professor at the University of Memphis is coordinating a study abroad opportunity for students to study at the Mohawk Reserve in Canada.  He has asked that this information be passed on to anyone who might be interested.  He has included several links to answer questions.  The following information is from Dr. Smallwood. If you have questions, please contact Dr. Smallwood directly.  His contact information is at the end of this article.

The first link answers questions about scholarships. We offer scholarships for our students here but there are several scholarships available nationally click on the link to the study Abroad Program to learn more about the various scholarships.

I believe other university’s Study Abroad Programs can be applied to our program as well. Please  check with your Study Abroad Program.

This Study Abroad course is on Native American History it is worth 3 credit hours. Here at the University of Memphis these credits would count towards a persons degree. A participant should be able to transfer these credits to their University.

Here is a link to the course but it is only a rough draft.  The trip for example will be only two and a half weeks not four but it gives students a clear idea of where we will go and what they should learn.

As for Housing we will be staying on the Mohawk reserve in Kahnawake, at Loyalist College near the Mohawk Reserve at Tyendinaga and at the Bears Inn on the Six Nations Reserve in Grand River. To learn more just click on this link and the embedded hotlinks.

Finally, I thought students would enjoy this video made by the Mohawks of Kahnawake or as the young Mohawks say “K-Town”

If you know any students there or at other universities that might be interested please pass on these links to them.

All the best,

Arwin Smallwood
