THE INDIAN UNIVERSITY OF NORTH AMERICA®, a unique partnership between the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation and the University of South Dakota, began in 2010 and is designed to validate, empower, and inspire Native American students from around the nation, while helping them foster the skills, knowledge, and habits required for success at the college level and beyond. In the five years since the Indian University opened its doors at Crazy Horse, educational opportunity has been created for students from 26 tribes and 16 states.
The Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation funds tuition, books, and supplies for accepted students as well as a substantial portion of students’ food and lodging costs for the summer. Students complete their first full semester of college during the summer program – earning 12 transferable credits made up of English, speech, math, college success strategies, and a paid internship at the Memorial.
