TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – By enrolling in the fall semester of the Cherokee humanities course, Cherokee adults who are non-traditional students looking to return to college have the chance to earn free credit hours.

For more than 12 years, the Cherokee Heritage Center has provided hundreds of non-traditional students the opportunity of a higher-level education by creating a curriculum in Cherokee history, language and culture.

A grant from the Inasmuch Foundation has made it possible for the CHC to support the tuition cost for students to take the course for college credit. Students may take the course in the fall and spring semesters for a total of six college credit hours in humanities or Indian studies through an accredited university. The deadline to receive applications is Aug. 12.

Priority is given to students not currently enrolled in a university or those considering returning to college. Those qualifying can also receive incentives such as mileage and childcare reimbursements.

The late Dr. Howard Meredith, professor and head of the American Indian Studies Program at the University of Science and Arts, established the Cherokee Humanities Course. The course replicates the original Clemente course offered in New York City by academic scholar Dr. Earl Shorris in 1995.

For more information about the course, call Tonia Weavel at 918-456-6007 or email tonia-weavel@cherokee.org.
