Is it recommended that Bridging Knowledge scholarship recipients still apply for financial aid? I didn’t catch how much of the scholarship would cover the cost of the entire program.
Valarie Kingsland
01:00:51
I could take only two classes at a time. It took me three years taking two classes at a time through Fall 2012 to Spring 2014 including summer special sessions.
Molly Lane
01:01:37
For the internships, do we complete 1 internship or 10 internships? It sounded like we need to complete ten 8-week-long internships.
Ekatrina Sotomayor
01:01:47
Okay. That's good info, Valarie. Quyana!
Keau George
01:02:39
Just to clarify, the scholarship program allows for awardees to take summer units as well? as long as remains within yearly awarded tutition amount?
Maile Loo

The 2022 conference would cost between $2-$3K for travel from Hawaii to the east coast. Is there travel assistance for the conferences if they are required for cohort students?
mary villegas
01:04:28
Will you be asking applicants to provide tribal membership documentation?
Keau George
01:04:29
Molly Lane… thanks for asking that questions!! I wanted to ask the same thing! I got scared…. 10, 8 week internships! haha
Keau George
01:07:25
Your application process does not include inclusion of a resume or CV? Is that something we should submit?
Marcus
01:07:43
Does the SJSU iSchool offer classes or a career pathway tailored towards Indigenous librarianship?
Diana Terrazas
01:07:51
Are current SJSU MLIS students welcome to apply? Or is this for new incoming students?
Sheila Gurtu
01:08:52
Hi Marcus, We had an indigenous librarianship course instructor who could no longer teach for us. We are hoping to offer it in Fall 2022
Marcus
