*MTCC VISTA- University of Montana Western
 
 
 
The University of Montana-Western is located in Dillon, Montana. The University of Montana Western Foundation exists to inspire generosity and connect donors with their passions in order to promote access and excellence in higher education at the University of Montana Western. The University of Montana Western has partnered with K12 and post-secondary education programs on the Blackfeet Nation for the past three years. These projects serve a variety of education related priorities, including the preservice certification of Indigenous educators to teach Indigenous children. We are seeking an individual who wishes to learn about the traditions, values, history and hopes of Indigenous people and to put this knowledge to use in identifying funding sources to create a long-term nexus between UMWestern and Indigenous communities around Montana. This individual will learn to develop informational and promotional media to be used in communicating current and future work with potential donors. In addition, the individual selected will learn to write effective funding proposals and grants to support project objectives. Finally, the VISTA member will work with relevant campus organizations, including the Native American club to advance understanding of Indigenous culture and support the success of Native American students who attend UM Western.
