National Science Foundation

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 “to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense…” World Forestry Center joined a collaborative partnership led by the Indigenous Education Institute and Oregon State University’s STEM Research Center in a grant project aimed at amplifying Indigenous voices and worldviews in outdoor learning experiences. As a sub-awardee, World Forestry Center will partner with Tribal communities to inform the development of new professional and public programming, including the new Fellowship program.
