Nation, Canupawakpa Dakota Nation and Dakota Plains First Nation.
In the year 2009, 16 Dakota First Nation Members successfully achieved their personal goals and
completed their post-secondary education with a certificate or diploma.
Applications that are received after the required deadline dates are placed on an after application
deadline wait list for further consideration. Once selections have been finalized; more selections may be
made from the after deadline application wait list, providing there are spots still open for sponsorship.
