Indigenous Knowledge for Effective Education Program (IKEEP) at the University of Idaho prepares and certifies culturally responsive Indigenous teachers to meet the unique needs of Native American students in K-12 schools. IKEEP scholars are committed to providing equitable education opportunities for all students in Idaho and the Pacific Northwest.
We hope to raise $5,000 in order to fund new IKEEP teacher candidates! Any additional funds raised will ensure the continuation of IKEEP's culturally responsive professional development.
We highly value your support to nurture the academic and personal wellbeing of Native youth. With your support, IKEEP scholars will continue learning to innovate, educate, and relate to students in ways that transform students' lives. Thank you.
Purchase textbooks for IKEEP scholars at the beginning of each semester. Three donations of $20 will purchase one textbook!
Teaching materials such as art/STEM supplies, tribal land maps, and culturally relevant posters provide IKEEP scholars with the tools they need to engage students in culturally responsive learning. $50 purchases a set of Tribal Nations maps for an IKEEP scholar's classroom!
Fund registration for Indigenous-centered conferences, retreats, seminars, and summer courses.
Offset tuition for a new IKEEP scholar.
