SAIGE Carol Jorgensen Scholarship for Environmental Stewardship

In 2017 this scholarship will provide $1,500 to two full time students pursuing undergraduate 
degrees in an environmental stewardship discipline, including environmental studies, natural 
resource management, the natural sciences, public administration, public policy, and related 
disciplines.

The Society of American Indian Government Employees (SAIGE) established this award to honor the memory and legacy of Carol Jorgensen whose service to her family, community, country, and Mother Earth was an inspiration for all.

Carol was Tlingit from the Yandestake Village in southeast Alaska and was part of the Eagle/Killer Whale Fin House of Klukwan. She served many years in public service, and at the time of her passing, was Director of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s American Indian Environmental Office. She had a deep connection to our shared Earth and was a passionate advocate for protecting the environment and human health in American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
