FLAGSTAFF - The Northern Arizona Native American Foundation (TNANAF) recently launched its Web site at www.tnanaf.org. Currently in its third year in existence, TNANAF, which is based in Flagstaff, launched the website in order to reach more high school students, particularly high school students interested in applying for college scholarships or for financial assistance for summer programs.

Brian Buckley, TNANAF executive director of TNANAF expressed his hopes that the Web site will allow Native American high school students in northern Arizona to access the non-profit's services more easily.

"We are very pleased to be online as we attempt to increase the number of opportunities for students. We hope by May 1 that we receive more applications so that more scholarships are granted."

TNANAF was formed based on statistics indicating that talented Native American students were not matriculating to college due to resources. In the past two years, scholarships have been awarded to Sherilyn Thomas of Chinle, Tyrrell Tahe of Kykotsmovi, and Yadira Caballero of Grand Canyon.
