This physical guide is the first of its kind and fuses college planning best practices with narratives from Native college students to encourage a college going culture. Approximately 15,000 American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian students in the class of 2020 will receive a printed copy of the first edition of the guidebook in the mail in April 2019. Students who receive the guidebook will be invited to provide feedback to help improve the resource.
